We Need a Mommy Revolution!

dv2014043

For years, I’ve written about feeding our babies and toddlers healthy organic foods whenever possible. But I’m finding it increasingly difficult as my children are getting older.

Last week, it was “our week” to bring snacks to my son’s baseball game. He begged me not to bring a healthy snack and said “Why do we have to be that family?!”

We are that family and I wish more would join me! Our children are the first generation in history to have a lesser life expectancy than their parents. Our children are plagued with obesity, diabetes and a host of other health related issues that are tied directly to the quality of their diets.

I don’t want my son to feel like I’m punishing him with healthy food.

Why can’t all of us moms step up and say NO to Dorito’s, Oreo’s and sodas at school and sports. We are killing our kids. The more we expose them to these artificial foods, the more they have a taste for them.

I don’t want my kids to feel deprived but I also value their health enough to want to put good things in. These are the years we develop their habits.

Come on mama’s, let’s have a Mommy Revolution and stand up for the health of our children!
