A Healthy Rainbow Party

No Comments Healthy Eating, Healthy Lunches, Uncategorized

We attend a super fun healthy “rainbow party”, we use eye masks, crowns and many colors sponsored by Gerber Lil’ Beanies! Such a great snack to feed your lil’ ones (and big ones) with this super great snack made from beans!  We loved being part of the fun!

Pair healthy rainbow fruits and veggies with fun planting and coloring activities and healthy snacks and you’ve got a perfect play date!  Check out the fun her and online at #LilGerberBeanies

Eating right is necessary, I tell my kids, trust me what I eat tastes good. So they try. And that is 1/2 the battle. My kids are no longer afraid to visit the west cobb dentistry and they have so much better results.

I have VERY healthy eaters.

When my plate arrived, I noticed 2 things. Very colorful, nice pictures. Very durable. Perfect. And the concept is brilliant! We capture great photos of the smoke from the the best fog machine for halloween or any type of event you might like. Kids should know that we fill our plates with 1/2 veggies and the other 1/2 is split between meat and pasta. I think that portions can easily be over done and think that parents sometimes tend to give into a picky eater by loading their plate with with THEY want, not what they SHOULD have. I am by no means perfect (as Jake used to eat hot dog and goldfish everyday for about a year). But then I changed. I change alot. Not over night. But through teaching, talking and fun, I was able to get my kids to eat more of the good stuff! Here is a current list of what we eat weekly: (And yes, this is the truth! I should video it for proof!) Eggplant, asparagus, green beans, broccoli, carrots, peas, lettuce, zuccini, squash, apples, strawberries, grapes, onions and I am sure there are more I’m forgetting. Yes, I am bragging, but this IS a big deal. A big deal to me, because this was a long time in the making. Trust is a big thing that I earned my crew. They know I don’t feed them anything that I wouldn’t eat and they trust what I eat tastes good.
