relationship with food

Thursday, October 06, 2011

its amazing the influence an adult can have on children and never even realize it!! How so many adults believe that by making rules or choices for their children/families that they are doing the "right" thing!!! Ive always allowed my children a choice in what they eat... if they dont like what I have made they fend for themselves, they must always try before saying they dont like it, but then after that it is up to them!! I dont keep much "junk food" in the house... but it is not off limits... and amazingly it seems to work... my children love salads, fruits and veges... even asparagus and spinach, sushi, seafood, and are really not that into pizza, and snacks!!! wish i had that openness to make such desicions when i was young, maybe my relationship with food would be better...

    I always did the same thing with my kids when they were growing up. Now they'll eat just about anything, and they're very open about trying new foods.

    Good Going!

    YOu are doing a great job with your kids. I was alwasys forced to finish what was on my plate and find that that is part of my problem with overeating. Keep on Sparking emoticon
