Your children will model you in every way. This includes what they eat.
My son, 20 months old, asked me for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich today. In our house that’s actually a almond butter and organic reduced sugar blueberry preserves on Ezekiel bread. This is kind of my healthier version of something completely void of nutrition and full of unhealthy fat, sugar and preservatives. (that’s how I feel about skippy&welch’s on wonder bread)
Although I was giving him a better version I still felt he could have made a healthier choice. I peeled a cucumber & salted it with Himalayan salt crystals. I sat down next to him and started eating. He saw me making a better choice & next thing you know he wanted to trade 🙂
I know what your thinking maybe my healthier PB&J simply tastes bad? Nope the kids LOVE them and eat them up on a regular basis. I think they just want to be like Mom and Dad so I make sure they only see me eating healthy.
