Eating Habits *B & D Mommy* Due January 19; 2 kids; Illinois 15945 posts

What are your eating habits for your kids? Like what do you normally feed them? I am just really curious. I see parents all the time feeding their kids nothing but junk. I know it is their kid and what not, but I can't help but think about it. They are just setting up their children for bad eating habits. I mean don't get me wrong. I have my days where we eat junk and all of that. But most of the time they are getting veggies and/or fruits with meals...and fruits for snacks and stuff. I have actually met people who never cook veggies or give out fruits with any of their meals...that just seems crazy to me lol.

They eat clean.



Fruit, veggies, whole grains. They both don't have very big appetites.

We eat a lot of clean, whole foods. I am a fan of the paleo lifestyle as well, but I don't think my chance of eliminating dairy or pasta is very high. :-(
My son should be the poster child for cheese consumption. That is the 1 thing he loves and I cave on.



We try our best and certainly are not perfect, but I think we are doing okay.
Oh and fast food is a no-go, along with heavily processed foods with additives, dyes, etc.

That is good! My hardest thing was bread and pasta. Of course I eat it here and there..but not much. I am surprised about the fact that I don't really crave those things anymore. However my son/SO eat those things more than I do lol

Same here. I can train myself to pretty much adapt to new food choices. I like exploring new foods, especially super healthy stuff.
You should see one of my best friends pantry...it is like junk central. I've rubbed off on her with my organics, but she rubbed off on me with her junk allowances. I feel like I'm mean mom for not allowing my son to have that crap, so he goes kind of buck wild when we go over there.
Her fridge is loaded with capri sun drinks too. I love her to death, but I dread the grazing my son wants to do when we go over.

Oh I understand completely! One of my best friends will take my oldest sometimes and they are always getting take-out and all that. Never cooking a healthy meal. And yet she constantly complains about the fact that she put on 60lbs in like 6 months. I keep telling her what she needs to change, but she won't listen..oh well lol. I can only offer so much when she asks for my opinion and then won't do anything to change her ways.
