I think my house has a pretty good balance of healthy foods and, to put it delicately, not-so-healthy foods. My family has done a pretty good job lately keeping the junk food consumption to a minimum. If I don’t buy it, nobody misses it. But we do enjoy a junk food treat every now and then, especially on special holidays and occasions. Do you know your child’s favorite junk food? What about their favorite healthy snacks? I know what I like to buy for them, but I was curious about what my kids would say about their favorites. I decided to ask my oldest three boys (ages 4, 6 and 10) what foods they like best. Now that I know what nutritious foods they REALLY like, I’ll have to be sure we have them in the house. I would like to think that my kids would always pick the good stuff over the junk food. That may be true some of the time, but not all of the time. I actually don’t have any problems with letting my kids indulge in a junk food every now and then. I enjoy sweets and treats, too! It is important for me to try to keep healthy snack options on hand all the time. I use them every day in school lunches and for our snacks in between meals. I make it easy for the kids to pick nutritious snacks by putting the good stuff (like Mott’s Snack & Go flavored applesauce pouches) on a shelf at kids eye level and within their reach. I don’t mind if my children go in our pantry and grab a good snack when they are hungry. If I do have things like cookies or chips in the house, I hide them. I like to put junk food up on the highest shelves, preferably out of view. Out of sight, out of mind, right? My kids love to climb and are pretty good at balancing on stools to reach what they want. I have also gotten pretty good at packing our traveling snack bag. Anytime we are going on a road trip, even just a short one, we need snacks! Bring along healthy options like cut up fruits and veggies, cheese sticks and crackers so we don’t have to stop for food at a convenience store or a drive through fast food restaurant.
