Here Are 10 Pictures of Your Daily Recommended Servings of Fruits & Vegetables — Delicious Nutrition 07/30/2015

Putting into perspective. Photos like these can help (us too!) learn to estimate healthy portions. How do you teach your kids about healthy servings?

Although these particular examples are for an adult diet, providing visuals can help kids picture portion sizes for a variety of foods.

Besides photos and portion control containers, you can use household items to help them estimate serving sizes. For example, 1 oz. of pretzels (1 serving size) is about the size of a tennis ball or 1/2 cup of vegetables (1 serving size) is about the size of a computer mouse.

Here Are 10 Pictures of Your Daily Recommended Servings of Fruits & Vegetables — Delicious Nutrition What's the most important part of a nutritious diet? Most of us can automatically recite the answer: fruits and vegetables. And yet it can be tough to eat the daily recommended amount of produce, and most Americans simply don't. I've certainly been among that 75% — the estimated percentage of us who…

Kids Now Prefer Playing With Smartphones To Dessert 07/16/2015

This is wild: 41% of say their child would choose the tablet over dessert! Would your kids choose a tablet/smartphone over dessert?

Also, check out the new trend of "TV as punishment" on the infographic at the link below. Terrible! I'm appalled. "Sometimes as punishment, I take the tablet or smartphone away and she/he just watches TV instead."

This isn't letting them experience the consequences of their actions. You have to be willing to let your child experience some discomfort, and even be upset. Allowing them TV when taking away their tablet is absolutely sending the wrong message!
