I have huge guilt over my 3 year olds crappy diet. My mother introduced her to Mcdonalds, Hotdogs, fruit snacks and we just haven't been able to go back. I dont mind the occasional doughnut or french fry, but she thinks they are part of daily life now.
I am a working mom, so we do use mac and cheese, hot dogs and the like, but she also LOVES cucumbers, grape tomatoes, grapes, yogurt, green peppers, fish, chicken breast, beans, and brown rice. I do try to get something good in with every meal.
My almost one year old is on formula (she wouldnt take breastmilk from a bottle). She exclusively nursed for 6 months and when I had to go back to work would not take the bottle with mamas milk. By the time she was used to it, my supply was gone
Im hoping we can start getting rid of junk items little by little.
I will add, we do limit cows milk to 2 servings a day, NO ASPARTAME, and never soda. I just about hit my mom over Soda once. she thought it was hilarious and a great idea to give my oldest soda. I was livid. We limit 2 apple juices a day and its 50/50 with water, then she is allowed all the water she wants.
