Schools over, let the fun begin! For weeks I’ve been preparing a list of things to do with the kids: activities, trips, social events, all in an effort to keep them away from the TV and video games. After only one week of summer vacation I began finding a major flaw in my diabolical plan. There was one thing that I didn’t plan for and that was their appetites.
Here are some suggestions for each of the categories along with their portion sizes.
When purchasing items for their snacks I picked just two items from each category. Now the kids can mix and match the items and never eat the same thing twice. They’re having a lot of fun coming up with their own combinations. The part that I love about this snack plan is that I know that they are eating things that are good for them. I also like that it’s teaching them good eating habits and I find that I’m using it as well.
Yesterday I had a house full of kids and when snack time rolled around my kids pulled out the snack guide. My boys explained how it worked and their friends had a blast creating their own combinations. What kinds of things do you do to make sure that your kids are eating healthy?
