HEALTHY FOOD IDEAS.

We are trying to stay healthy this winter and decided we need to make a healthier "menu" for Cole. He doesn't like sweets, candy or ice cream...so we are GREAT in that area. But I found that if we didn't have a "menu"...we ended up feeding him what ever was around...it was a lot of frozen chicken nuggets & string cheese. So, this is what I've come up with and he LOVES ALL OF IT! (These recipes can be easily changed to Gluten Free or Dairy Free!)

7am (BREAKFAST):
Oatmeal & Frozen Berries (thawed) from Costco.
10am (SNACK): 
Tangerines & Craisins or Chex.  

12pm (LUNCH): 
Gluten Free Toast, Almond Butter & Banana.
...if you don't do Gluten Free:
Wheat Toast (Costco), Peanut Butter, Banana's & Honey.
4pm (Snack): 
Goat Yogurt, Fresh Strawberry's & Primodophilus (good for the gut!)
...if you are on the go or in a hurry:
Apples (cut up/whole), Avacodo, Fruit Cups in 100% Juice (NOT the ones in HEAVY SYRUP!)
...if you have little ones:
Baby Food Pouches are GREAT to keep in your purse (no spoon need!)
They do have JUST apple sauce pouches...maybe for your older kids on the go?
Do your kids hate fish...but you want them to get Omega-3?
Milled Flax-seed is your answer!  It has 2300mg of Omega-3 in 1 serving...Omega is GREAT for the Brain!  I mix this in Cole's Oatmeal or yogurt.  It's VERY fine and you can't really taste it!  
(...also from Costco!)
Don't forget...a Healthy SMILE!
Tom's of Maine Toothpaste (All Natural)
or 
Colagte Floride-Free Toothpaste
Cole has been eating this "menu" for a few weeks now and he has been VERY healthy.  He did catch a small cold when he went back to school after Christmas Break...but it was EXTREMELY MILD and didn't last long!  Yay!!!

  1. What great ideas! And I love the pictures. I'm going to try some of these. I never thought of adding flaxseed--will have to try that!
