Instill the love for healthy foods in your children by getting them involved not only in daily meal preparation but also in the process of choosing healthy, nutrient rich, local food.
Tell them why it is important to maintain a holistic health lifestyle. Take them shopping in your immediate surroundings, to the farmers market for vegetables and to the butcher shop for local meat, visit a farm, show them a chicken coop. Encourage them to learn to turn over the packages and read the ingredients. Teach them how to cook, preparing a meal together is not a chore; it is the preparation of NOURISHMENT for the body that in the process also comforts the soul and sets the stage for an abundance of wonderful memories.
All these things will teach them that vegetables are grown, animals are raised and healthy food is fuel for our body.
WE have a choice and it is up to every family or individual to make changes and go back to the basics, cooking simple meals with
HEALTHY, FRESH & LOCAL ingredients.
