A Good Book

Having been reminded by a friendly blogger (see Amy in my links to the right) about eating right and exercise being a part of our responsibilities as Christians - I decided to pick up one of my favorite and most convicting books (in the eating category) and re-read it. I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone. Dr. Sears does a wonderful job of outlining how to teach your children to eat right and make healthy choices. I'm not saying I'm a pro at eating healthy by any means, but I have picked up some great tips that are working with my kids... and if you don't have children, it's still a great read about how what you eat affects your health from when you're born to the end of your earthly life. It will definitely make you think twice about the things you purchase in your next trip to the grocery store!!

Thanks for the book recommendation. I'm going to get it today. My son is 15 months and when I asked my pedi what he should be eating, he said, "Whatever you are eating." What if I don't know what to eat myself?!

that's an interesting answer from a doc!! a few of the things recommended in the book that my kids like are blueberries, peanut butter, and fish.

Are you related to the author? I guess french fries and hot dogs can only take the kids so far! Thanks for the suggestion.

Ok. Got the book. Am about 1/2 way through. How do you prepare the fish for your kids?
