DOES EVERYTHING ALWAYS HAVE TO BE SO HEALTHY, MOM?

 

WOW! I CAN’T WAIT TO TRY SOME OF THESE RECIPES WITH MY KIDS.  Ok so you have seen me post that  my kids snack on healthy things but lets get serious. Kids are kids and yes they do roll their eyes at me and say, “Seriously mom, does everything always have to be so healthy!”  “Can you please find some organic cookies, healthier than OREOS but not so healthy so they at least taste good?”

There are many times they do give me a hard time.  Don’t be fooled because they fight over Organic Pea Shoots or eat romaine lettuce leaves without dressing.  Don’t think that just because I have started them young on juicing and eating vegetables, fruits, and an organic as possible lifestyle that they don’t want to eat Kit Kat bars, Haribo gummy bears, soda, and other unhealthy foods and snacks.  They are exposed to these all the time. Their friends eat them.  There is advertising everywhere.  I educate them on chemicals that are found in those certain foods and what can happen when you consume chemicals – not crazy in depth but short, sweet and at the kid level.

Then we look for a healthier version so that they don’t feel deprived or  want to just go to their friends homes and gorge on junk. There are many healthier choices. They look at labels for certain ingredients that they know are not good for their body.  They are kinda funny because instead of getting mad at me they get mad at the candy bar or the company.  They will something like, “What the heck is wrong with them, why do they have to put high fructose corn syrup in here. Don’t they know there are other things they can use instead?”
