How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This is probably the wrong time to bring this topic up, but, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP) has updated their guidelines for kids- as young as 2.

The Dietary Guidelines describe a healthy diet for adults as one that;
Emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products;
Includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts; and
Is low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars.


The MyPyramid for Preschoolers interactive Web site (MyPyramid.gov) offers individualized nutrition guidance to meet the needs of children aged 2 to 5, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP).

MyPyramid for Preschoolers offers tips to help parents deal with finicky eaters:
  1. Set reasonable limits for the start and end of a meal. When you see your child is no longer interested in the meal, excuse the child from the table.
  2. Encourage your child to try new foods, but don't lecture or force your child to eat..
  3. Talk about fun and happy things as part of an overall effort to make mealtimes stress-free..
  4. Cook together. Encourage preschoolers to help you prepare meals and snacks..

Other features on the MyPyramid for Preschoolers Web site include:
  1. MyPyramid Plan, where users can create a customized eating plan..
  2. Growth During the Preschool Years answers parents' questions about their children's growth..
  3. Developing Healthy Eating Habits explains to parents and caregivers how to help children develop healthy eating habits..
  4. Physical Activity outlines how to encourage preschoolers to be active..
  5. Food Safety..

I am sure that somebody went to a lot of effort to put this together.
Whether or not parents and kids will take advantage of it, is another question.
