As you can see in three of the four following pictures, we are sort of junk food junkies at our house. All four of us love our desserts, our junk foods, our sodas. Dash wakes up in the morning and asks for snacks instead of breakfast, and Sunny runs towards me yelling “juice!” when I crack open my can of Fresca. See what I mean? Really bad habits forming here, but I can’t seem to get them excited about fruits and vegetables. The best I can get them to do is peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat bread rather that white.
As parents, Dane and I are well aware this is simply a result of our poor eating habits. The kids are just doing as we do. But, even as we change our ways and focus on healthier eating, they are asking for chips and dip. I’m certain most of you have success stories, healthy tips, and tricks to help your kids fall in love with veggies? Please share! Thanks in advance, and of course, Happy FRYday!
