In this era our children's diet and lifestyle is more stressed than ever. Children go from Hockey to school, to swimming to soccer, finally home exhausted to the television to bed, only to wake up and do it all over again. Children are eating on the run constantly and never stopping. Family dinners don't happen as often as they used too and processed pre-packaged foods are dominating the shelves and tables. Children don't need to be busy all the time, they don't want to have activity after activity, without realizing it they are burning out, and will get sick. Children need down time other than watching television, relaxing things like reading, drawing, crafts and just playing imaginative games alone. Children are incredibly creative and capable of entertaining themselves if they are just allowed too. Let your children be children, the need time to just play, eat and relax. Think back to your fondest childhood memory and see where your favourite memories are. Make nutrition an important part of childhood, make your own granola bars, dinners filled with protein, carbs and fat, family time. Be healthy, be nourished.
