    Smile Healthy Snacks for kids.....

    I watched a program last night that shocked me (it shouldn't have!) about advertising directed at kids. Food and fast food commercials directed at kids. The advertisers spend billions on trying to get our kids to eat junk and they admit it!!! It was really interesting. I didn't realize that in some countries they are not allowed to advertise to children during certain shows and hours. Here is a list of some healthy snacks for our kids, not prepackaged stuff!

    I'm also frustrated by all the advertising aimed at my kids. I guess it just gives us the oportunity to discuss honesty, TV isuues and healthy eating.

    I've had a heck of a time this week with dd. Dh would give her a cookie or a candy bar everytime she asked for it! She was filling up on this crap and not eating her meals! With dh gone, it's taken a whole week of her barely eating to get her to eat the food I give her before she gets a cookie! Arg!

    Schools in our area sent a note home yesterday stating they are now required to take vending machines out of schools & that they are not allowed to offer any sugar-type snack to kiddos before 3:30....they are asking for healthy treats to be brought in for their Christmas parties....

    'Bout time....
