Do your kids eat well?

Do your kids eat well?  I mean, do you feed your kids well?  And I don't just mean all organic, I just mean you cook or prepare 3 meals a day for them.  Do you?  I used to.  They ate very few things that came wrapped in any kind of shimmery package.  It's been a while.  I feed them, obviously, but not nearly as well as I'd like.  Maybe that will be my New Year's Resolution, to be more conscious of what I buy and what I choose to feed them.  We eat out too often, even once a week isn't necessary really.  It's just so easy to run through In N Out after karate when it's 6:30pm and I know they'll eat it.  For the first 3 years of Drew's life she had a homemade hot breakfast everyday.  Now I'm shoving a granola bar in her hand as we get into the car.  And Lauren, poor Lauren.  By the time she came along a hot breakfast was special! and infrequent.  Chicken nuggets from the oven and green beans is a common dinner for her.  A cheese stick or pretzels is what she knows for a snack.  Infrequent are the days of fresh fruit smoothies with flax seed (magic powder!) as a snack.  

I'm disappointed in myself for not putting more energy and effort into their diet.  I really should start.  It would benefit everyone in this house.

Oh, crap.  We'll have to start tomorrow.



  1. I feel you! I have your same meal plan :).

  2. I'll buy you a crock pot and pressure cooker for your birthday.
