Gatekeepers of our children’s health

Who decides what baby’s first food will be? Or what goes into your child’s lunch box for recess? And who decides what the family will eat on a daily basis? Mom, I believe it is you. Like it or not, mothers, we are the gatekeepers of our children’s health. What we decide to store in our pantries and cook in our kitchens affect their taste buds and habits. Even after they leave home.

Home-cooked food is not necessarily healthy

When you have health challenges that involves your diet, eating is a complicated affair. Eating out of the home even worse. So please understand when someone queries you about the recipe of your home-cooked dish. It may not necessarily be that she wants to steal your recipe 😛 but that she is really cautious about her child’s or even her own health. Because…home-cooked food is not necessarily healthy, and for us, safe.
