Healthy Diet, Healthy Kids
Our September story “Your Child’s Nutritional IQ” showed how parents can get children to eat a healthy diet by getting them involved in food preparation. We asked our readers on our blog at www.energytimes.com and our Facebook page how they got their kids to eat right; here are two responses.
I have always been straightforward with my children when it comes to eating healthy foods. I have told them in terms they could understand, depending on their age, about disease and how the body works as a machine. I give them examples such as putting sugar in a gas tank of a car instead of gasoline—how would the car operate?
I have worked in health food stores for more than 15 years, and both of my children are well aware of people’s ailments. I remind them that they too can end up sick if they don’t eat foods that help keep their bodies healthy. I also explain that healthy foods come from the earth, and junk food is made with “fake” stuff. My 7-year-old is a great label reader! —Trish
Don’t buy the junk, keep reinforcing their knowledge of good, healthy eating and never sugarcoat the veggies! —Selda
T-Shirts for a Good Cause
I enjoyed the story on Melina Kanakaredes (our July/August cover story). I am interested in the T-shirt that she helped design for the Komen foundation. Can you tell me where I can get it from?
As explained in the story, the “CSI:NY” star became involved in the fight against breast cancer after several women in her life developed the disease. Her T-shirts are available through Hanes and Susan G. Komen for the Cure at www.hanespink.com/melina-kanakaredes.
