I’ve been trying to encourage my kids to indulge more in the healthy eating. Because they’re not fat they don’t see why they need to and to be fair they do have a good diet in the main. I just really want them to regularly include a couple of things in their diet. I’d love for them to drink just a shot of Kefir and a half cup of Kombucha a day, I know the huge benefits it gives me, particularly the energy boosts and the gut health benefits.
I’d also like them to include a tablespoon of seeds in their daily food intake either through health bars or just putting some on their cereal or into a smoothie. I use milled flax and it’s tasty and so good for you and it adds a very slight crunch to breakfasts.
Fighting their resistance I urged them “You’re not supposed to like it, see it as medicine, it’s doing your body good, just eat the darned stuff.”
I need to listen to my own advice, food has always been something that’s for fun, pleasure, leisure and I really need to have a slight change of mindset to it being medicine, to see it having a purpose to fulfill in my body. I might be fighting a losing battle with the kids I might have caused them to develop a bad attitude to food already through my own lousy example. But I’m not going to give up trying.
