8 Ways to Make Food Shopping as a Parent More Bearable

No one is denying children aren’t the gift that keep on giving. But, as a parent, there are just some tasks in day to day adult life that shouldn’t be accompanied by kids. Namely the weekly food shop. Opening yourself up to a world of whining, potential tantrums and…

Breakfast - Most Important Meal of the Day

When I worked in our elementary school district, one of the most heartbreaking things I dealt with were the kids who came to school hungry.  Our school didn’t offer a lunch program, but it wouldn’t have mattered anyway.  Our school didn’t have “cooking” equipment.  We basically only had ovens to heat up processed foods.

When kids don’t eat breakfast, how are they expected to have the energy and brain power to learn?  They are left tired and lethargic.  And it’s very hard to concentrate, for anyone let alone a child, when all that you can think about is how hungry you are.

Most of the children who did eat breakfast, didn’t eat “real food”.  They consumed sugary breakfast cereals, pop tarts, Toaster Streudel, French toast sticks or some other equally poor choice.  When children eat foods filled with sugar, chemicals and artificial dyes, they experience the high and lows of insulin response and can become hyperactive.  In either case, these are not traits conducive to learning.

Lisa Leakes has a wonderful website called 100 Days of Real Food.  She is a mother who started a quest to feed her children real food.  What I love about her site is that she gives very easy, very practical tips and spells all of her recipes.  These are great, kid friendly recipes that children not only enjoy, but thrive on.

One recipe I especially like is the one for Whole Wheat Waffles.  This recipe uses natural, organic ingredients and is served with fresh fruit, and even unsweetened whipped topping.  The recipe makes a dozen waffles, which can be frozen for future use.  I recommend making them on a Saturday or Sunday when you have some time and then just grabbing and heating on busy school mornings.  Your children will love them!  For the full recipe, click here.  Enjoy!
