    I’ve seen this issue a lot with kids with sensory issues or ones that are on the spectrum and don’t like changes, including changes in foods, and will only eat the same foods. It’s so hard when people try to give advice like “they’ll eat when they’re hungry” and “don’t give in, just make them eat what you’re eating.” It’s not that easy. My sister tried that with my nephew and he forced it down only to vomit after. I say just keep trying. Offer new things and see if he’ll take a bite or two. One bite here and there and sometimes they eventually like it. I did this with my son. As long as he tried i was happy. Then he could have something he liked if he really didn’t like it. It’s not a battle I wanted to fight so we don’t.

    My husband can do it all himself. From roofing to completely gutting and rebuilding. I’m so thankful for this! This has saved us a ton of money by not having to hire people. Unfortunately it takes time and he has a full time job and we’re busy with our kids. It also still requires money for major renovations like this. We took out a home equity loan and it’s added to our mortgage. Best decision. We’ve been doing renovations a little at a time for the past 15 years. We have a big old house and we’re slowly getting it to where we like it! It takes time and we do as much as we can when we can!

    healthy eating has kept me feeling great! I’d look into quality supplements and clean eating. This keeps me feeling great and healthy!

    in reply to: Non-GMO vs. Organic #43538

    yes choose organic whenever possible. That way you know you’re avoiding gmo’s along with artificial ingredients, pesticides, perservatives, etc

    in reply to: Do you let them eat gmos? #43536

    We avoid by only buying organic foods for our home. They really are bad for you, so many negative health problems because of gmo’s. I do realize it’s impossible to avoid when going out to dinner, school, parties, and friends houses though. I’m strict about the foods in my home but not strict when eating outside of home.

    in reply to: Avoid GMO? #43532

    we avoid gmo’s whenever possible. So many negative health problems from gmo’s. Impossible to avoid 100% all the time but one way to avoid them is to buy organic foods.

    in reply to: Healthy snacks #43531

    carrot sticks with hummus, tortilla chips with guacamole, apples dipped in peanut butter, whole grain toast topped with pb and banana slices, frozen grapes, ice cream made just from frozen bananas or any other frozen fruit. Look up recipes for this. It’s so good and a favorite with my kids. They think they’re eating ice cream! We also like plain greek yogurt with fresh fruit, granola, and almonds mixed in.

    in reply to: Bread or cheese #43527

    I love making pizzas that are healthy. I use whole wheat flatbread. My favorite is cooking up some chicken and cutting it up. cook some fresh spinach and garlic in olive oil in a skillet for a couple minutes, then add this and the cut up chicken to top of a flatbread. Add goat cheese on the top and bake for 5 minutes. So delicious and a quick and healthy, low calorie meal option. My kids love this too! I also add tomatoes on top but you can top with whatever you like!
