Growing up I didn’t necessarily have the worst diet… but it was far from great.
I grew up in a home that didn’t really understand real food all that much. I also had a father who was extremely picky which limited a lot of the foods in our home. I always assumed what foods my parents didn’t like, I didn’t like too. Turns out I was so wrong. As your family grows make sure to take a look and learn how your kids can eat and love real food just like you:
Since I was a little girl, my nutrition education has been an ongoing contradiction.
First, the Four Food Groups were introduced as an absolute – eat meat, dairy, bread, fruit/veggies every day. Period. Seemed straightforward enough to my early adolescent mind, but mostly I was interested in eating double-stuffed oreos and Micky D’s fries.
Then in the early 90′s, the tried-and-true food groups were replaced with a confusing Food Pyramid, heavily weighted with all things grain. While I was happy to oblige with massive servings of bread and pasta, these guidelines always felt a bit off.
