The longer I am a parent, the more I am concerned with the foods I give my children. There are so many studies showing the importance of filling our bodies with good wholesome foods. So I am always making efforts to improve our eating habits. Dinner time can be a battle ground. We all know that our children should eat healthy. We tell them to eat their vegetables, and they do, most of the time, right? Unless you have a carnivore like my Little E. It takes him FOREVER to eat his veggies! Thats when I get creative!
Well what about when we eat out? These days, our lives get so busy people eat out quite often. Most restaurants idea of a kids meal is fired chicken and french fries. Not exactly healthy, right? I know I have concerns with the effects of all the sodium fat and sugars in some of these meals. There are healthy kids meals out there, we just have to look.
