New Years Resolution

I'm working on a post for Multiples and More about getting kids out of a food rut, you know when they only will eat one thing and only that one thing no matter what time of day it is? Ours is toast, waffles, bagels and chicken nuggets. Quite the combo right?

For a while I was making their nuggets from scratch and then Winn-Dixie closed by me and there went my buy one get one deal on chicken, so I resorted back to the super simple Tyson nuggets. I watched Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and saw what went into chicken nuggets, threw up a little in my mouth, and then *yuck* continued to serve them to my kids. I'm making a vow to stop serving that crap to them (really, it is crap) and anything that has an ingredient that I cannot pronounce.

I have to admit I got really lazy towards the end of the year. With everything going on, and going back to school it just became overwhelming for a moment. Now I'm over it and fed up with the crap that is out there for people to eat. 90% of what is sold in supermarkets, quite frankly, is garbage. This is my new years resolution, to stick to my guns about nutrition and set my kiddos up for success. Let's hope I don't flake out again this year.

Oh how I want to jump n this bandwagon with you. I too watched Jamie Oliver's show and was disgusted when he made the chicken nuggets. It did not stop me from buying my next bag of tyson chicken nuggets to once again serve my kids. I hope you do put together a post for M&M to help me get out if the rut!

I think that's a great resolution! And you are right - most of what is sold in grocery stores is crap. It's sad what happens when we start shopping for foods that are quick instead of foods that are good for us. And we all do it, we just all need to do it less! Of course there is a cost difference too - processed foods tend to be cheaper than fresh foods - so not everyone has the option of going with the healthier option very often, but still - your point is well taken! Good luck with your resolution =).
