It’s totally empowering once you decide as a parent to raise your children on real food. You know that everything you put into their developing, growing little bodies is full of nutrition. While children are growing, they look to you for direction and often do as you do, it’s so important to lead by example.
As a parent you create the environment and the beliefs for your child. In the first 6 years your children are like sponges, they take in everything from you. What they learn in the first 6 years will shape a lot of their reactions for the future. Setting a great home environment with real and whole foods is a fantastic start.
It can be easier at home as your kids are eating everything you make and prepare for them although it can get tricky in the outside world as children are enticed with so many bright colours of packaged food and are going to be playing with other children that might come from families with different nutritional beliefs. You are the one making the decisions for your baby, your children and your family.
