Life with teenagers can be a roller coaster ride; one day they think you are the greatest, next day they think you don’t know anything. Gone are the days when they cry when you drop them off at school and you worry whether or not their friends will play with them at recess. Fast forward to the teenage years and now you worry how they will do on their math exam, will their face clear up before the weekend and obviously, are they eating properly.
I know from personal experience feeding picky teenagers can be a challenge. If my daughter had it her way she’d eat pasta or pizza every night. How do I ensure she is eating properly?
If your kids are anything like mine they love noodles. Whenever we go out for Chinese food they always want the fried noodles and vegetables though I think they end up eating more of the noodles than the vegetables.
At home we have several different kinds of noodles.. the typical pasta-type noodle, rice noodles, soba noodles, udon noodles and now I have added another one.. squash noodles.
We are well in to 2019 and I am wondering how you are doing with your New Year’s Resolutions.
So many people commit to huge New Year’s resolutions that are nearly impossible to achieve. Then, they end up being disappointed they didn’t achieve them. One suggestion I have for you is to make your New Year’s resolution ACHIEVABLE this year.
The holidays are among us – a time of year that’s known for its busy nature that can lead to quite the load of stress. After all, you likely have several invitations to gatherings collecting on your counter, a long list of people you need to send holiday cards to, and the daunting task of braving the shopping mall crowds to find the gifts for your loved ones. Perhaps you also have to plan a menu to feed everyone over the holidays. All of this, on top of your normal every day life. It can be overwhelming to say the least.
Has breakfast become a challenge since your daughter has become a vegetarian? Are things a bit hectic in the morning with everyone trying to get out the door on time?
Breakfast is super important and we should not let our kids leave the house in the morning without eating something nutritious. A stop at Starbucks on the way to school is not the best option. We want out kids to be able to focus and learn throughout the day and a nutritious breakfast can help.
