This quote from Meryl Streep has always struck me with some truth: "It's bizarre that the produce manager is more important to my children's health than the pediatrician. "
DS would eat bananas and green beans all day every day if he had it his way, and I am SO grateful for that. I'm just curious what else mamas have done to help their kids learn to enjoy healthy foods.
My son has been given healthy foods from the moment he started eating solids. We skipped rice cereal and all the baby foods. My son at 6 months had mashed up food I had prepared. He was never given chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, pizza, hot dogs and other disgusting foods that are not healthy for a person. My son ate at a friends house the mom made grilled chicken and steamed veggies my son was excited until he tasted the food. She put tons of salt on everything my son was polite and ate his meal but he was not feeling well later. His body is not used to taking in so much sodium so it was rejecting it. I am a very good cook so I know how to use herbs and fresh ingredients to make healthy and nutritious meals. We eat a mostly vegetarian diet. We do have chicken once a week and fish once a week. We avoid red meats, shell fish and pork. Food to us is fuel so we eat to live and don't live to eat like some do.
