I was very fortunate to grow up with parents who were pretty health-conscious. We didn’t eat sugary cereals for breakfast (except on VERY special occasions) and our meals were always well-balanced. As a result, I feel I was given a head start in life and I also feel like I developed a healthy relationship with food.
Now that I am a parent, these are my same wishes for my own children- A love and appreciation for the foods they put in their bodies. I want to give them the tools they need to make educated decisions on what to fuel their bodies with.
There are some great ways we can teach our kids about what they are putting in their systems. One of them being to learn how to read nutrition facts on the packages of our favourite foods. One of the most important things to be looking for when reading the Nutrition Facts is the serving size. Then look at the % Daily Value to see if it has a little (less than 5%) or a lot (15% or more) of a certain nutrient, such as protein, iron and Vitamin C.
Canada.ca/NutritionFacts is a GREAT resource to help ensure you are making healthy choices for you and your family!
