When my ds was a baby I tried hard to give him a healthy, organic diet. But the first time someone gave him junk, that was all he wanted from then on! At the time, dh and I didn't have the best diet and didn't know anything about natural family living. We've changed. Dh is a vegetarian and I go as organic as I can afford to- but food is a constant battle with our ds. When there is no junk for him to eat, then he'll eat only carbs! Bread, pretzels, juice, etc. - so then I have to make him eat protien. (He's ADHD and too many carbs increase his hyperactivity). So, here's my dillemma; how do I encourage my nine year old son to eat a healthy, organic diet and not engage in a food war with him? Because, as you all know, the more you tell a kid he can't have something, the more he wants it.
Any advice, recipes or commiseration will be welcomed.
