I just watched the movie recently along with reading Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Honestly, who do you trust anymore? Then entire movie just made me sick. Thanks for the chart wife&mommy.
I have a picky eater too. Once I stopped the formula and gave her milk it got much better. I gave her the food first, then offered the milk later during the meal. That helped too. Keep offering the foods (you mentioned fruit) because their tastes change so quickly. A food needs to be offered several times before a child decided they do or do not like it. Good luck! I am sure your child will be fine and healthy.
Simple living for me at this point in my life is more about where I am spending my money, schedules and my mind set.

I think teaching DS that you can play these game in moderation is good. We use a...

I love this! I would like to continue what I have started over the summer. I had a rummage sale (baby sale) and sold so many of my things that have been sitting in the basement. For example baby clothes from DS who is now 6 years old. I am going to continue cleaning out the boxes in the basement and donate, sell, or get rid of anything we don't need/use anymore. I like the one box a week idea...I will start with that.
