This week we're talking about healthy habits. With recent videos going viral on the Internet about the "pink slime," a.k.a. chicken nuggets, I've decided to reach out to my fellow mamas on what they are doing to make healthy habits for their children.
I admit, I've never been an avid healthy eater. I do love healthy foods, but with the hustle and bustle of a girl on the go, I've strayed in the past from my healthy ways.
Then, I had a son. I refused to let him pick up my unhealthy habits, and I was determined to have him eat a variety of foods, including healthy ones. Well, I seem to have suceeded thus far. My son loves everything from seafood to fruit to a variety of veggies, and I stuck to my guns on watering down every liquid he drinks. But, I do find it as a challenge as my life seems to be picking up again. Schedules are busy, and we are on the go more often than not these days.
I also have learned to make healthy eating a fun task. I rave about fruit and veggies and certain foods, so that my son is excited to eat them. And, it definitely has helped the process of his healthy eating habits. But, I know there is so many more tricks of the trade out there that I am missing out on.
This is where I am reaching out to the Collingswood Patch readers.
