Better Nutrition for Kids: End of the Rainbow Fruit Salad Book Review & Giveaway

By Melody Meiners

If it grows from the ground or is picked from a tree, my three year old is certain there is a conspiracy against her. And help us if it is green and leafy, that is the dinner time equivalent of armageddon. Since force feeding is considered a war crime, and her ability to wait me out has become epic we aren’t left with a lot of options for getting healthy foods into my daughter’s belly instead of cleverly tucked under her booster seat.

Our family isn’t alone. Eating healthy and the consequence of childhood obesity is one the top three concerns for parents today according to a poll by the University of Michigan.

Snacking 101
[20 Feb 2013 | Comments Off | 8,999 views]

I really love sitting down to a great meal, but I have always been a food “grazer”.  I was never one who could starve myself all day so I could save the calories for my evening meal. Not only would my stomach start to growl, but I would experience a frightening personality change from the lack of food! Our blood sugar typically dips around three to five hours after we eat, so eating small, frequent snacks keeps the metabolism revved up and helps normalize our blood sugar. Hunger can throw the …

Free Your Mind: Mindful Eating Strategies

By Harriette Kraus

My family and I are self-admitted foodies. While other families go on vacations and bring back glowing descriptions of paintings and churches, we can illustrate every luscious detail of the Paella in Barcelona, the Caprese salad in Florence, or even the amazing carrot cake in Chicago.
