Food Needs to be Fun

Fun and Healthy

Healthy family

Healthy children grow up to be healthy adults

When it comes to food, it can be either very boring with the same thing every meal, or delicious and tantalising. How do you rate your food? Meat and three vegs or a lovely variety of food?

As a child we always had meat and three vegs and there is nothing wrong with that and in fact it was always truly delicious. My mum (with 9 children) was an excellent yet simple cook. Hence we all survived and thrived. Sadly my dad died at 60 from a sudden heart attack as he loved his meat. In fact the first thing he ate when he was having a steak was the fat.

Food Options – are they Healthy?

Of course these days we have so many options with food. Our children are becoming more fussy than in earlier days due to the many options available to them. Sadly though much of the food available especially the treats, are processed foods with chemicals and toxins that have a negative effect on behaviour and health. If you are finding this a challenge, especially with the chidlren, check out Sue Dengate at the Failsafe Eating Program.

Sue and her husband have worked tirelessly to help families with the food for themselves and their children. Sue was the person who managed to have the chemical 382 removed from our bread. This was a horrible chemical and caused emotional disturbances especially hypneractivity in children. Sue researches each chemical and provides a comprehensive list of these chemicals and their effects on us.

Sultanas for Kids

You know the little packs of sultanas you buy for kids? Did you know they can cause a negative reaction especially in kids? I had a child visiting me once and her grandmother couldn’t understand why she had suddenly become so over active after being on the Failsafe Eating Program. We both realised the only food she had given to the child over and above what she would normally have, was the little box of sultanas.

Solution to Hyperactivity

When a child has had a drink or eaten something where they are running up and down stairs or just being over active, a small dose of Bicarbonate Soda is usually very effective. The dosage will depend on their age. Check out this article from Healthline

Combine both mixtures and push through sieve into a large bowl. Stir parsley through. Serves 4-6.
