Protecting Our Kids From the Decline of Healthy Eating

Picture it, I’m standing in the cereal aisle of the grocery store and my daughter is saying, “Mom I saw that one on TV can we buy it?”

How many times has this happened to you? She’s only 3, and we don’t watch very much TV. So, how does this happen? Everyone keeps telling me, wait until she starts going to birthday parties and school, then all she’s going to want to eat is junk!

On top of this, there’s so much misguided information and advertising.
Did you happen to catch the Kellogg’s case in the news? The FTC ordered them to pay for their claim that Rice Krispies boosted immunity!

Oxygen readers we know about processed foods and trans fats, but isn’t it sad that we can’t trust packaging?

Help me with this one, is it really inevitable? What do you do to keep your kids from what most say is the decline of healthy eating?
