I often get asked how parents can get their kids to eat healthier foods. My daughter is 22 and so it has been a long time since I had a little one to cook or prepare foods for. So I went to the grocery store and looked at the foods that are there for kids. I have to say I was so surprised and shocked when I began to read all the labels on the cereals, granola bars, crackers, cookies and drinks that are sold for kids.
It is a crime that a grocery store can carry foods that could directly harm children. Packaged foods that contain dangerous chemicals, food dyes, sugar and preservative. These are our children!
Kids need nutrition as they grow. When did we get so far away from this. When and how did it all go so wrong. These “foods” that are packaged for kids lunches are not just devoid of any nutrition but are actually harmful!
