I have this hand-written sign posted on my fridge at the moment.
It’s an attempt at conveying to my children how what we eat can have a huge impact on the ways our bodies deal with the mix of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals we pour into them each day, and what that means for general health.
I aim to provide as much dietary content that originates in plants as I can, and minimal stuff from packets. It’s a hard and daily battle, as evidenced by my daughter’s added sentences at the bottom of the green sheet:
We don’t always have to eat healthy food. We can have treats sometimes.
The question is, whose definition of ‘sometimes’ should we apply?
