8/1/15 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Monday

My husband and I were lying in bed last night talking about what kinds of foods we want our son to eat when he's at Grandma's for the school year.  I obviously don't want to be annoying or have her go out and buy special things but it as I've mentioned in a few blogs I at least want him to get enough fruits, veggies, whole grains, and very little sugar.  But, of course, this got my husband asking me, "What does that mean?  Most people don't know food labels like you do.  I am not even sure what all that entails."  This actually applies to my own diet and yours if you're trying to eat like me.  I don't think I'm keen on the idea of him having no sugar because that usually means artificial sweeteners.  But, I would like low sugar items and virtually no sweets, at least until he's one for sure.  The list includes:



-high-sugar cereals (Captain Crunch, Frosted Flakes...even Raisin Bran has high sugar!)

-juice (I don't even want 100% juice until he's one!)

-any kind of dessert

-check the labels on Graduates and Toddler foods that are easy to suck on but usually dried fruit:  shouldn't be more than 5g of sugar!

-cool whip (unless it's lite but still, this is unnecessary food that has no nutritional value)

-fruits in a syrupy sauce

-BBQ sauces (high in sugar and again, unnecessary!) 

Do I sound crazy yet?  It's just important to me that my son grows up used to healthy foods and enjoys them because that's what he grew up on.  I won't keep all junk food away from him, but I want him to have it very seldom.  Otherwise, if he never has it, he'll just binge at friends' houses which is what I used to do!
