High Cost of Health Food Means Kids Eat More Junk

If I were a parent reading this article, it would raise many more questions than answers:

  1. How can I buy healthier choices for my kids and save money?
  2. How does increased prices on raw materials (milk, corn, etc.) affect food prices in supermarkets?
  3. How can I introduce healthier alternatives to snacks, etc. into my children’s lives without “force” feeding them?
  4. What is the easiest thing I can do to start this healthy process…in myself and in my children?

Many times, a solution provided by one of these methods often result in spending more money, which may help in the short run but leaves for more issues in the long run. The better question is: How can I make simple lifestyle changes that will affect my future decisions in maintaining health and wellness?

I have clutter out the wazoo, I have clutter in my mind and I’m doing so much, I don’t have time to clear the junk out of my body. (doesn’t this sound familiar?) 2010 was filled with all kinds of ups and downs and I did my best to navigate through it with ease of mind.

Unfortunately for me, my ease of mind came in various forms – clutter, chocolate, carbonated sodas (organic of course! :p), wasteful spending (when I get depressed, I don’t eat. I shop) and whatever else ails me that ego doesn’t want to recall – and the second part of last year as spent finding ways to cut down or cut out all this junk!
