Mmmm....This is Good
My 7 yr. old and 4 yr. old went shopping to Sam's Club with me over the weekend. We were looking for healthy snacks to take in their lunches. I stumbled upon a Chex Mix Bar. It looked like gooey deliciousness, so I took a look. To my surprise, it had 130 calories, 3.5g of fat, and 4g of fiber. Not much unlike a Fiber One Bar. We decided to buy them and taste test them in the car on the way home. Of course, Daddy had his down in 2.2 seconds, but the girls savored each gooey delicious bite. My 7 yr. old said, "I'm eating it slow because it tastes so good." And because she said it, my 4 yr. old repeated the same only emphasizing different words and a fight broke out of "Quit Copying Me." Why is it that kids get it? Food that tastes good, should be savored and enjoyed slowly, not scarfed down like you have seen food in days. I am working on it, but apparently as evidenced by my to little food critics, I still have a ways to go.
