Eating habits are learned behaviors; they're not intuitive. So much of what our children learn to eat at home early in life sticks with them well into adulthood. The foods we feed them today will be the foods they carry forward, feeding their children and their children's children. The magnitude of your role is gigantic, yet can be made more simple with easy to make pure whole food snacks.
It starts with imagination and creativity. Because we all know kids gotta have fun. Snacks are very important for kids, because children can't eat a lot at one time. So keeping snacks super healthy and nutrient dense is key. To introduce them to eating clean and green, try these easy Raw food popsicles made with all organic fruit.

Calling All Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Educators and Advocates for our beautiful children! Don't let the American Food Industry manipulate their foods with hidden additives, dyes and mystery 'natural flavors'. 'Natural flavors' is an unregulated key word for MSG and hundreds of other very scary chemicals. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has unfortunately taken very limited action on food additives, including dyes such as Red 40 and Yellow 5, which are suspected to trigger hyperactivity. It is up to us to be diligent in protecting their growing bodies from these dangers.
The Best To Your Health!
