i think no tv is SO key. granted, my big kids are only 4.5 and 3yo, but it's already made a big difference. we try to stay out of the big box stores, which also helps a ton. we get groceries from farmer's markets or natural stores, limiting the exposure to things like junk food splattered with cartoon characters. my oldest has perfected the phrase, "that's just a marketing ploy," haha. i think we've done a pretty good job thus far. while i'd love for them to never, ever see a tv, the reality is that we spend a lot of time with family members who don't live a similar lifestyle, so there's still some exposure. keeping it out of OUR house, though, has set a standard. you just kind of learn as you go!
