Quote of the Day
Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
Today, April 29th, 2017 is HEALTHY KIDS DAY! Kerry has a great section on her Healthy Diet Habits website, called Healthy Kids, but today, I wanted to focus on one page in the section called, Children's Nutrition and Discipline.
Food should be enjoyed by all, but not as the way of showing love, reward, or discipline to your kids! Healthy kids with a right relationship to food, should be the goal of every parent.
