I am generally a healthy eater, much healthier now that I've had a child than I was before. Reason being: I want her to eat healthy!
I believe children eat what parents eat, children aren't going to eat vegetables if you're not doing the same, so I decided that I need to start eating even healthier than before.
So...who else is going to be feeding their children raw fruits/veggies & foods high in protein/fiber & other very healthy things instead of junk/processed foods?
I know peeople who say they feed their children healthy cause their snacks are animal crackers and apple sauce, but I don't consider that "healthy"
Also, my aunt and uncle have a 3 going on 4 yr old girl who barely breaks 30lbs and all she eats is junk food, potato chips, cheese sticks, beef sticks, cheez wiz, cheese puffs, apple juice (which if you've ever watched the news you know there so much arsenic in apple juice) and pringles...i have yet to see her eat something different, she literally refuses to eat anything besides those things, she will scream cry whine and throw a tantrum, while my aunts philosophy is "as long as shes eating she's fine!" I disagree BIG TIME, she will have major health problems when she grows older diabetes, being underweight which she already is, all her clothes fall off of her..even her doctors lecture my aunt on how she isn't feedign my cousin healthy and howshe isn't healthy. ...oh and she eats a lot of candy..and guess what? all those things my cousin eats my aunt eats too, hmmm I wonder why my cousin won't eat anything else? . while my other aunt and uncle have a 2 yr old boy who outweighs my cousin I just mentioned and he's ALL muscle, he has no fat according to his doctors, he eats fruits, vegetables, meat, banana bread, and has practically no juice, when they give him juic it's half juice half water, and even then he doesn't ever ask for juice, he asks for water water water.. unlike my other cousins who never asks for anything besides apple juice...
I'd rather have her eating healthy NOW than deal with it later in life. who else is with me?
