Child obesity... acces to fresh foods vs bad choice

Helle Ben - posted on 05/10/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




There is so much information on food and its effect on our bodies... and different approaches. It is very confusing; but still it must be a matter of choice if we serve our children unhealthy food or not. No?
Do you feel that you are missing information on how to raise healthy eaters?
Are you just too confused by all the different advice?
Are you eating unhealthy food out of habit, cultural reasons/
Your child only wants unhealthy food?
Do you have poor acces to fresh foods?

I wonder why it is so hard to change eating habits and become healthy... every celebration comes with something sweet.
I really want to break the cycle and raise healthy eaters...

It's not that hard. I cook from fresh ingredients every day. I make my children's lunches every day. Celebration foods are sometimes foods. There is no harm in having something sweet sometimes, that isn't what makes people unhealthy. It is processed food and not eating and preparing fresh foods. Learn to cook with fresh ingredients from scratch and you will be well on the way to raising healthy eaters.
