  • I'm very strict w/ feeding my daughter healthy diet. She is vegetarian, so i really have to make sure she gets adequate protein. At dinner, she has to eat her veggies before she can have the main course.

  • I try to give my daughter plenty of fruits and veggies, but sometimes she goes for the fruit cup or applesauce instead of a banana. Its give and take she is a carb junking so I have to really try to limit those.
