  • I THINK I do. I try to get a little bit of every food group in his meals. And if I forget, then I know its not going to hurt him. I try to get at least three of the food groups in his meals.

  • my son chooses healthy foods over bad. we cannot keep broccoli in the fridge! he takes it out and chomps it up! :-)

    i feed him as healthy as I can because i had a lot of issues growing up where i ate nothing but junk. i am now obese and taking care of Diabetes issues... i don't want my son to have the same path...

  • I try my best. These days, though, unless you've got an advanced water filtration system, an indoor organic garden with chemical free soil, your own animal farm and meat processing equipment, etc. you're probably getting all kinds of things you don't want to think about in the foods you purchase for yourself and your family. It's one of the negatives of our industrial society. I don't think it's practical for most of us to go through that trouble, so we try to pick out healthy items at the store and we wash our veggies and cook our meats to the proper temperature and teach our children to make healthy choices by making healthy choices ourselves. Sometimes, it's nice to go to McD's for a burger and fries, but every day is unhealthy. Find balance and do all things in moderation. :)

  • I try to serve them healthier options but sometimes it does not always work since they are so picky

  • War Eagle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PS, kids need to see the food 15-30 times before they will try it. Just eat it in front of them and eventually they will ask you for it... ;)

  • I do feed her healthy food, but I'm ashamed to say she eats some junk too.

  • I feed them lots of healthy stuff, but some of the stuff is not as healthy, and they are allowed a little junk food. We just try to make the majority of what they eat good. We try to always have fresh fruit, snack like yogurt, string cheese, ect on hand for them.
