My kids eat Cheetos.
Yes they do. Not everyday. Not even every week or month but every so often they do. Yes I know I said we eat clean, mostly, but I also said we balance what is sustainable to what is attainable. (Case in point, these deliciously sweet oranges they are about to have with their breakfast – same color as their beloved Cheetos but much much more beneficial for their growing bodies.)
What the heck does that mean right? It means that we haven’t removed ourselves from the world. We are not granola consuming organic extremists. Like you, we do the best we can with what is available to us. I am not one of those moms that will wage war to prove my organic point, I think all moms should be on the same side, there should actually be no side, we all do what we can.
But I do believe that it all balances out. And when you are ABLE to do something, you SHOULD. I consider it being proactive.
I am also not an expert, I mean I don’t have a degree or anything like that. I do my research though, I thoroughly read on information that has to do with the health & well-being of my family. I find that mothers are naturally that way though, it is what drives us.. Crazy
