With the rise of obesity amongst children, it is so crucial to start them on the healthy path at a young age. It is up to us, the parents to educate ourselves and to provide the best possible food (meaning nutrition) for our children.
We chose to bring them into this world so we NEED to take responsibility for their health. At least while they are young. But if you start when they are young and maintain healthy eating habits when they are growing up at home, you have done your part. You cannot control what they eat as adults or older teens but they will have a good foundation and knowledge that you have supplied to them.
I have decided to put the 2 lists in 2 separate blog posts. This first one are the foods to avoid. This may seem so overwhelming but remember – you don’t need to do it all at once. You also can choose what you will eliminate. You have to start somewhere. Just begin to become conscious, read labels, start to put more good foods into their diet and day. This is a process.
In the next blog post I am going to list some great healthy foods to add into their diet.
Let’s start with the ones to avoid and please stay tunned for the ones to add.
