Grocery shopping with my future foodie!
I often get asked by other moms “how do you get your kid and family to eat so healthy?”
First of all, let me just be transparent and say that things are not as perfect as everyone else thinks and on a daily basis, my best laid out plans don’t always go as smoothly as planned.
Today was a prime example, I could not for the life of me get my toddler to eat the lunch I made for him simply because it was a new recipe that he had never had. So after over an hour and a half of coaxing and threatening 🤦🏽♀️, this tired mama eventually gave up and fed him his favorite dish - a mash of rice, butter and avocados.
So all this to say, give yourself grace mamas! I once read somewhere that if we want to look at how well our kids are eating, it helps to look at the bigger picture. Look at how they ate over the period of a week rather than in a day. Often times you’ll find that they’re actually not as bad as you thought.
That’s why Frederick Douglas’ quote “It’s easier to build strong children than to repair broken men” is so fitting.
Here are some tips I WISH I had known when I first started my healthy eating journey:
