Feeding your kids the right stuff is usually an interesting task. Getting them to actually eat the stuff is a whole other story! When they're at school you can be reasonably sure that they are eating a little more healthy. Most of the vending machines have been removed from the school and the lunches served are nutritional. First Lady Michelle Obama tried her hand at making school lunch ever more healthy, but her efforts have been rejected by most districts. Seems the kids were choosing not to eat rather than eating what Mrs. Obama and her team came up with!
As challenging as it is, the biggest bummer is keeping the bad stuff out of your house. If it's not there, it's more difficult for your little darlings to get their hands on it, at least till they're teens! The 'bummer' part is, you lose out on some of the yummiest junk food there is. Oh, the sacrifices we make for our kids. They better appreciate it one day! Not to worry, one day when you're the grandparents, you can stock up on all the horrible food in the world. Not only for you, of course, but to share with your grandchildren before they go home! Payback, baby!
