my kids and food

Abby here..

Those 2 boys: they are my world.

I spend a lot of time and energy thinking about and planning the food my little guys (ages 1 & 3) eat.   I strive to fill their bodies with clean proteins, raw vegetables and good fats every single day.  I’m not implying it is always perfect or that we have never just called it a day and ordered pizza.  What I am saying is most every day I cram lots and lots of good things in their growing bodies.  My passion for this has at times seemed a little overboard to some family and friends, but for me it is a strong conviction and something I know will pay off now and in their future!

Sometimes while we are out and my kids are hungry, I think about how easy it would be to just run through a fast food place and grab them lunch.  Luckily, we have a co-op in town where we can run to and grab lunch when we are in a bind.  It’s not a drive-through and it still requires sitting down and eating, but it is a good option for us.  Feeding my kids the way I want to feed them takes time.  It takes effort.  It takes being really inconvenienced at times.

But to me its worth it.

One post does not do this topic justice.  I could write an entire book about this.  And not because anyone would want to read it, but just because I care about it that much.

Over the next few days I am going to share some of my go to foods that my kids love.  Things that most kids love and and things that mamas can feel really good about feeding them.   Here are some of the things I make my kids.  Expect this list to keep growing!

roasted sweet potatoes
homemade salsa
smoothies, smoothies and more smoothies
