Real Food for Children- Sunday Surf

There has been some fabulous food being made this week. It’s been really enjoyable to read everyone’s menus. Did you see Artful Mama posted her meal plan, and she was in labor?  Now that is dedication to real food! She was filling up with healthy, protein rich food so she’s  ready for delivery. So what about real food for baby? I thought THIS article was really great. I know with my children I learned more with each child. Avocados were the first food for our kids. We don’t need no rice cereal!!!
A few fantastic recipes were shared. Gabe posted a recipe for Rosemary Quail and Rebecca posted a recipe for homemade pizza. The pictures made me hungry. I think we’ll be adding that to our list of foods to make. Pizza is always a crowd pleaser.
We’re winding down to the end of our 10 Day Real Food Challenge. I am really enjoying the process and look forward to continuing to eat this way. I was feeling in a rut and completely unmotivated when it came to preparing food. This challenge has got me excited about food again. The farmers markets are starting soon and that will keep me inspired. Did you see we took a visit to Green Chin Farms and saw all of the babies that were just born?
Most of us notice a change in our health or that of our children’s when we take positive steps in good nutrition. Margaret wrote out the reasons for her journey towards real food HERE. I have been feeling more energetic this week, I know I’ve been eating more than I usually do. I think that has been a big help.
Steering kids free of the junk food is hard.  That is a struggle most of us face when trying to find a balance between social eating and healthy food. My family already thinks we’re ‘weird’ about so many things. I try not to make an issue about food all of the time, but I’m just not ok with my children eating garbage. How do you handle these situations? I found this post at The Nourishing Gourmet helpful about raising children in a culture of junk food. I’d love to hear what you do in these situations.
Last but not least there is a great giveaway for convertible training pants at the Natural Parents Network, Check it out! This has nothing to do with real food, but I thought it may interest you. Have you found some helpful links on the web this week, do share!
