Ahhh the nuances of being a parent, something that I (hopefully) won’t have to experience for some years to come. From my own personal experience i completely agree that exposing your children to the process behind cooking and preparing food is vital for them to understand key nutritional concepts — this definitely helped me. Do you think that simply explaining to children that eating bad food will make you feel crappier whereas eating nutritionally dense food will make you feel better and more energised is something that would help? This might give them pause to reflect on their food choices and the effect it has on their mood and body, (although I know for the the majority of kids ice cream is just to potent a food to resist). Thanks for writing Peggy. Peace.
