The Fruity Balancing Act

One of the nice things about summer is that the summer fruits start to appear, and it’s no longer about eating just apples and pears. Oranges, grapes, strawberries, and eventually peaches and nectarines, you just can’t beat it. We try to feed the kids fresh fruit every day for either breakfast or lunch, preferrably both, and then veggies for supper. The fruit thing works well when you have variety, because they’re more inclined to be enthusiastic about eating it rather than being forced. As you can imagine, this is more difficult in winter. We’ve been eating oranges like they’re going out of style.

They tire of eating the same thing every day, however, but I have noticed that as they get older, they’re more tolerant of the repetition, not to mention welcoming of things they didn’t like as much a couple of years back. I’m glad for that, but it ain’t easy maintaining a healthy diet. Then again, the best things in life don’t come easy.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Mrs Magic for the pic.
