Healthy snacks!

As a mom of two boys and a dietitian I'm so happy that my kiddos eat healthy!! Jackson helped me make some home-made pesto and then eat it up with carrots. "Mom this is SO GOOD...YUM!" were his exact words!! Thought I'd show you that both a 3 year old and a 20 month old can munch on carrots...Dane does prefer raspberries and Cheerios, but will "gnaw" on a carrot too!
Be sure to keep your fridge stocked with fresh fruit and veggies! Let those items replace cookies and chips...just DON'T buy the junk. Jackson asks for a snack...reaching for an apple or you'll start to eat better too!

Do something FUN today with lots of MOVEMENT!!! Have a "dance party"...turn up the radio and just DANCE! This is especially good at the "witching hour" which is usually about 4pm at our house!

How about I spend the entire day- like 12 hours worth- sitting behind a desk and doing conferences? Sweet, huh? Ugh. I need chocolate, I mean a carrot stick!

Hey - You have my 4:00 hour pegged, we often do just that. Very often. ;-)
