They EAT what I BUY!!
One thing I’ve been thinking about in regards to children’s nutrition, especially with young children, is that they eat what I buy. I'm not talking about all the time because we visit family, etc. But a majority of time (which is what really matters) is my children eat what I buy and fix. If I’m concerned that my children aren’t getting the right foods then wouldn’t it be my job to PURCHASE the right foods. I'm the one at the grocery store bringing the food into the house. I mentioned this to my sister when she was complaining that all her kids want to eat is junk food. (I probably would to if that's what was in the house.) I asked her who brings the junk food into the house. She answered sheepishly, "I do." Hmm... Interesting. I've been there. I didn't like some of the things that my kids were eating until it dawned on me that they wouldn't be able to eat it if I DIDN'T BUY IT. Revolutionary idea, I know. At least it was to me!!!
