Everything in Moderation

See, this is why I love this webpage.  In the link below you will find great tips and information about shaping healthful eating patterns for children.

Fat, Salt, and Sugar; Not All Bad

Remember, you are your child’s best teacher concerning what to eat and how much to eat at a time.  I believe that there is no such thing as “bad foods”.  I do believe that there are foods that we should eat less frequently; however, never offering a cookie or a potato chip is not necessarily the best decision.  Often, the mystique that we place on (restricted) sweets/salty snacks intrigues children and shifts their focus to pursue these foods even more.

Offer these foods in moderation as a part of a healthy, balanced daily intake.
