enjoying motherhood way more than science:
married to DH (2003) mama to DD(Nov 2008) & DS (Mar 2011)
I just wanted to say that I admire you mamas who are so vigilant about your LO's diets.
Diet for us has been the last thing to change and it's hard. I know the basics b/c I was raised that way, but the logistics are really intimidating.
Then I find myself reasoning it away...for example, at home DD gets almost 100% organic, raw, whole food. So then if I am out running errands and she is getting cranky and I am running out of time, we end up with popcorn and carrot sticks at Target, or I snag Annie's bunny cookies.
She's also tasted plenty of junk...she had a sip of soda b/c everyone wanted to see her "make the face" she had regular cake on her birthday...she's tasted icecream...we made cinnamon rolls together tonight...
At this point, I don't know that I've done anything "wrong" but then I think you mamas are doing it right...so what does that mean for me? Ah, cognitive dissonance!
We are very little junk food here. But, I do not consider homemade cookies junk. What we avoid like the plague is anything store bought, designed to have a "long shelf life." BLECH.
He of course does not get pop or sugar cereals or other high carb snack type filler foods. But, we walk to the bakery sometimes and split a cinnamon roll together. I want him to learn to enjoy food in moderation so that is what I am (trying) to teach him.
This. I see lots of heavily-processed snack foods on the shelves at the health food store - they may be organic but it's still junk to me.
