Our family makes a point of sitting down together at the table to eat dinner every night. I try to put a healthy, home cooked meal on the table each night. I think it is so important for families to have that time to spend together enjoying food while talking about the good and the bad of the day.
Having said this, I’ll go ahead and let you know that I don’t sit down with the kids for our meals in the middle of the day because I’m usually busy trying to catch up on some household chores. I make sure I feed my children a very healthy lunch with fresh fruits and veggies while I grab an Easy Mac on the run.
I realized today that I am very concerned that my children are eating three balanced, super healthy meals a day while I’m eating junk. Am I the only mom who does this? Surely, I am not alone. Anyone want to make me feel better about myself? Go ahead, tell me you eat junk, too.
I need to make sure I’m taking care of myself, too, so I can take care of my children. I made a decision today to make sure I sit down to every meal with my family, not just dinner. And, I’m going to make sure I’m putting the same good-for-you food into my body that I insist on putting into my children’s bodies…no more Easy Mac for me.
So, here’s to my decision to make time to eat healthy. Here’s to my health!
