Just like me, I’m guessing you too spend a lot of time in the supermarket checking labels and trying to remember figures and statistics. It’s horribly depressing and frustrating especially when all you have to worry about is the health of your kid! I wish I could say Georgie eats nothing but fresh produce. No canned stuff. Nothing that contains ingredients I can’t even pronounce. But I would be lying – shamelessly hang of head. He loves these caramel waffle biscuits- organic, naturally- and a lollipop – a nail-biter half an hour- every now and then so i would hate to restrict him to just fruit as a snack when he’s on the go.
But the truth is I really do make an effort to establish healthy routines in my baby. I feel any parent can at least do that for their children. Be natural, by all means but also be informed. Know that a supermarket brand is probably the healthiest choice when it comes to basics like ketchup, mayonnaise, porridge and peanut butter. big-brands, surprise surprise, are not always the lowest in sugar, salt and fat content. This may require more time in the case of working parents but it is doable. Articles, such as the one I have linked, are a huge help.
It’s hardly breaking news
but anything that will make those supermarket trips fun again, is fine by me.
