This week's challenge at WW was to eat at least 10 meals focused on the filling foods. Frankly, I thought this would be an easy challenge. I know my meals are usually healthy, it's my snacks that tend to be not so healthy.
So I've been focusing on healthy snacking this week. My 8 yr old came home Monday telling me that she had nothing healthy in her lunch. She has snack mid-morning, but is only able to eat something deemed healthy by her teacher. She is a picky convenient food eater...doesn't eat fresh fruits, yogurt or puddings. I usually throw fruit snacks, some snacky bag and another assorted prepacked dessert/snack to go along with her entree which is usually mac/cheese, ravioli, or leftovers.
Yesterday, I sent string cheese, orange slices, pudding and a rice krispie treat. The only thing that didn't come back home was the rice krispie treat.
She sees me snacking and I'm sure she's learning the bad habits from me.
I'm working hard on the healthy snacks this week and so far, so ok ;)
