    Whole30 with toddlers.

    We're currently doing Whole30 with our 4 and 2 year old. We're on our third week and I explained to my kids that it's a healthy challenge. We can eat ALL the fruits and vegetables and meat we want. And I explained that we have to be careful about what we put into our body because too much sugar and processed foods,(insert examples), can make our bodies sick. They seem to understand. When my daughter doesn't like something I tell her to eat it with something she likes so that it tastes better to her. I just matter of factly tell her that we just have to learn to like good foods. And when we're done her prize is a new doll she's been wanting. When she says she wants a treat like a candy or ice cream I tell her "you're not a doggy, you don't need food as a treat" So far she's really starting to love vegetables. It was definitely difficult at first. I did make "yogurt" and that's been a bit of sweet a couple of times. It's coconut milk with chia and fruit. On my third week I plan to go rogue and make up my own recipes. So I'm thinking for when we go to the park, maybe meatballs with a side of avocado and banana chips, "yogurt" with seeds on top and deli slices, banana and almond butter and aidells chicken apple sausage, salad with nuts and meat/bacon and boiled egg. It's all an experiment with them. Good luck!
