Bad School Food for Kids

How bad is school food for our kids? - Concerned Mother

I would say that most schools these days are trying and they are aware of the problem. but because of limited funds they can only do so much.

But I totally agree that chocolate milk or an orange juice and mac and cheese is just not what a child should grow up on to live a long disease free life.

Wow

This trip to Madrid has really turned out to be an amazing experience! People are so friendly and helpful and they very much seem to like children too! A family oriented place for sure. Lots of parks and playgrounds for kids. And the food choices are great! Even for vegans. My son is of course complainong a little, he says he doesn't understand the point of sightseeing. He says if we can look at a picture of video of a place or buildong or palace online, then what's the point of going to see it - it's anyway the same! Hm. I didn't really agree with him on that one - ha! Nevertheless, we are enjoying ourselves.

Children Books on Healthy Eating

This subject is so important and good for kids to learn as early as possible so a new generation can grow up without all the candies and sodas that are making people so sick.

I like 'Nutrition Fun with Brocc and Roll' and 'Good Enough to Eat' is another one. Many more too, I mention on the books page of this site.

Visiting new countries is fun, also with kids

Do you like visting new cities and places? I do. And my son loves it too.

We are in Madrid, Spain right now! Just landed. It's hot but such a friendly and positive vibe! We are taking a taxi to our airbnb and then let's see what else we will decide to do the rest of the day.

I know I want to check out a famous raw food restaurant that should be just around the corner from our apartment. They have juices too.

Lots of food for vegans in Spain!

Active Kids Are Healthy...

if they also eat healthy! Never forget the importance of a healthy diet.

Kids don't move enough though these days. Cars and electronics are to blame. But there are solutions.

How about getting a trampoline? It is a good idea for kids who aren't that interested in being active or going far away from home to do activities.

You could even get a very small one if you don't have a yard and place it in the kid's bedroom or your living room.

Another idea would be to get a few nice balls and start playing ball with them. Volleyball or softball or anything fun.

Some kids might even like more quiet activities like yoga or kung fu for kids that's very playful.

Milano

My son is back and now we are both on a trip together! We have a layover in Milan. It is busy but a fashion capital, for sure. Lots of fancy shops. Benji would appreciate being spending more time here now than back when he was a baby, okay maybe not a baby but he was 3 years. Not that he disliked it at all, he was always happy wherever mommy was.

What we did in Milan when he was only three? We were visiting the main cathedral and we walked around and went into a lot of designer stores. We had good food. And when I had some meetings, my mom took him to lake Como and had some relaxing time over there.

Anger Management for Kids

Someone asked about anger management for kids. If you have a cute little tantrum monster at home, it does sound like a good idea, Maybe it would be good to get a book on that subject and start to teach your child how to manage his anger.

But also what helps sometimes is to closely look at what it is that angers you child the most and when it usually happens. Keep a log - write down when it happens, what triggered it and what happened. That way you can check the frequency and you might notice after a while that the tantrums are getting further apart. Because children go through so many stages.

Also look at how you react to the anger and change it up. Your child might also start to change his behavior as a result!

I saw a documentary

where people wanted to buy houses in Hawaii. With 13 climate zones all in one and lots of fruit trees it seems great. Because of the fresh fruit availability I'm sure it's easy to feed yourself and the kids healthy throughout the trip. Wow, what an island. Would love to visit one day. I'm sure it's a child friendly place.

Vegan chocolate for kids

If you have to buy kids candy, go for the less harmful ones.

Today I was shopping, was sitting an hour or so in the sun and now I'm going home to relax.

I bought vegan chocolate that I will send to Benji, and maybe when he gets the package he will miss me too!

It was 40% cocoa with rice milk (2 of those) and one darker chocolate nougat (with a lot of hazelnut). Doesn't sound too bad.

Hey

I was in town earlier and accidentally left my keys in a fruit store! Good thing my son was home so I didn't have to go back to get them anymore today. I will have to go back there tomorrow to ask if they have seen them. At the moment I'm resting on the couch. It's a hot day here in Malta. I'm thinking of the watermelon I will start cutting up soon, about how good it will taste. I'm too lazy to get up and do it yet though. And soon I need to start organizing and washing clothes for the trip. I guess it's doable. Hope you are doing well over there!

Son is traveling again.

This time he is visiting my mom. And omg. I just spoke to mom n Benji to say good night and they just casually told me that they all have decided that Benji will stay there longer.

And here I am expecting him to come home on Friday.. I mean I'm glad he is having a good time but I will and do really miss him.

Every time I walk past his room or even the table I'm like, he is supposed to be there.

I guess I'll just keep myself busy by working on this Nutrition for Kids website so I don't have to think about missing him.

Ants

Ants all over my house! We live on the second floor so you would think not too many bugs find their way into our home - wrong! We have these small black ants that seems to live here as much as we do!

I cannot leave any fruit or food out for more than 10 minutes and they will be walking around the plate trying to climb up on it.

My son has several times accidentally forgot his juice glass on the table over night and in the morning it's black! Full of those small creatures.

So I started researching on what to do and found out that peppermint oil and tea tree oil is something they don't like and they apparently loose their trail and can't smell if those oil are on all surfaces. So that's what my house will be smelling like for the next few days - peppermint and tee tree!

This island is full of fruit trees!

I have been feasting on figs for many days now, and today I found a lot of peach trees! All different types of peaches! Never knew there were so many varieties. One was quite small with purple skin and purple flesh. Such an amazing 'peachy' taste that I'm sure you would be as happy as I m right now if you would be here. Oh my. This is heaven.

Animal Sanctuaries are nice to take kids to.

There is an amazing place here in Malta called Dreams of Horses. A place full of rescue horses where people can come and visit and pet them. I am so taking my son there one of these days.

There is also a duck sanctuary not too far from where we used to live. For his birthday, my son wished that I would take the money I was going to buy one of his gifts for and give it to the ducks. He has such a big heart that young man.
