I love the beginning of July…watching the kids coast into a slower pace with each day stretching out before them, a new adventure to be had.
For most parents this is also a time when rules get relaxed, a welcome break from the rigid school year.
While this change is celebrated by all, keeping some healthy balance is important for your child’s wellbeing and an easier transition back into the fall.

Inspiring your child to eat a wider variety of foods can be a drag for both parents and kids. Instead of nagging, try this fun challenge.
Have your child make a list of all of the foods they think they like and the ones they think they don’t. Then challenge them to move one food each week to the like side of the page with the goal of making that side of the page as full as possible.
Challenges like this give your child some control over the process and creates small wins for them when it comes to inspiring adventurous and open-minded eating.
