You know that eating healthier foods is the only way to get great transformation results but what about the rest of your family? Are you doomed to make two meals for the rest of your life? Not at all. You can cook healthy meals and please the entire family all with one daily meal. Here are my top 5 strategies to escape the “two meal mommy” trap.
#1: Introduce them to healthy fare early!
As a mom you have a huge influence on your child’s culinary preferences. You can start to influence their preferences as early as pregnancy. Try as much as possible to eat healthy foods like proteins, veggies, fruits, and healthy fats during your pregnancy. Continue this habit through your child’s infancy- especially if you are breastfeeding. When your little one is ready for solid foods, avoid the temptation to feed them quick, convenient, processed food. Continue the healthy food theme that you started during pregnancy. They will eventually start school, visit a relative, or attend a birthday party and be introduced to foods that you would not normally feed them but when you set the stage early for healthy eating and remain consistent, you will minimize your food battles and likely raise a healthy eater.
