I know it has been some time since I posted anything but with a very active 2 year old I definitely have my work cut out for me. He is wonderful and I love him. Words can not express how much this boy brings me joy, happiness and all that embodies love. He is a guiding light for me and I am truly grateful for his presence in my life and the lives of my family. My 66 year old father had a serious heart attack recently, which was a shock to not only him but also to the rest of my family. He has always been very fit and well we all thought to a degree healthy but his heart said otherwise. He had to have major open heart surgery and after almost 4 weeks in hospital he is finally at home and recovering. It goes to show though, that good nutrition is so important and this idea needs to be instilled in our children from a very early age. Yes, you are probably saying, but I have a fussy eater, they don’t eat the vegetables that I put on their plate, etc., etc., etc. The idea is to give them an option to chose what they want. My son some nights will only eat protein. Of course it is good quality grass fed meat from butchers that sell organic meat. I want my son to have the best start in life so I never give him inferior foods. Other days he might eat some vegetables or organic red kidney beans or a stir fry that I make with coconut milk and vegetables. I mix it up and make sure that it is tasty as he loves flavour.
I encourage him to eat fruit. At first I would prepare it for him but he would not eat it. Then I started cutting it up and leaving it on a plate for him to eat when he wanted to and this worked wonders. He is very independent and loves to feed himself. I love it and he does too. He now has his own table and chairs that he sits at when we eat and he loves this as well. He is such a big boy now. Some days I think where did my little baby boy go. I have some great resources on my website so check them out on the resources page and the product page. I will be adding some great books to the product section of my site. Besides my book I love “Well Adjusted Babies”. It is a bible for parents who want a good healthy start to their children’s lives.
Look forward to chatting soon
