Jack and the Beanstalk

One of my favorite fairy tale story as a child growing up was jack and the beanstalk. This fairy tale had a very adventurous storyline that always kept me on the edge of my seat as to what was going to happen next.

For most of us if not all of us know how the story ends with jack slaying the giant, both him and his mother getting the golden goose of the giant that lays the golden eggs and in the end becomes very rich.

Vegetables smiling and dancing-how-to-get-your-kids-to-eat-vegetables

As parents one of the challenges most of us face if not all of us and that is getting our children to eat their vegetables. I am sure you can still remember your childhood days when your mom or dad or both of them maybe some other family member almost had to brainwash you into eating your vegetables or perhaps you were one of those kids that just loved eating your vegetables without having to be brainwashed or threatened.

Well if the latter describes you then I know it was a joy for your parents to fill your plate with veggies. You were rare as a child in this matter because this is not how it is with kids that are in most homes. The flip side of the coin, however, is that in some homes kids are discouraged by parents not to eat vegetables and what I mean by this is some parents indirectly discourage their kids by getting them used to unhealthy eating.

In this day and time, fast food joints are making a killing of the number of monies they are making simply because some kids somehow get their parents to say yes when they pass these places. But as parents what we must realize is that our kids health is important and we cannot afford to allow them to throw a tantrum or it doesn’t matter how cute little billy or suzzie may be as they look up at us with such pitiful eyes that we just melt and say yes, anything for you my little angel.

Doctor’s report

Here is what studies have shown with kids that are overweight, It is a lot that can be said on this point but I think you will understand with these few short sentences just how dangerous it is for kids to be overweight because of unhealthy eating.

Obesity in Children

Smiling hamburger holding sign-how-to-get-your-kids-to-eat-vegetablesWhen it comes to children it is alarming off the many who are overweight. Studies have shown that in the United State 1 out of 3 kids are overweight

which can lead to type 2 diabetes, bone, and joint problems, high blood pressure, heart problems, trouble breathing and other health-related issues.

Studies have also shown that being overweight is a major contributor off persons dying in the United States.

So from these few sentences, we can see what unhealthy eating can do. We should make changes to our children’s diet even if that means cute little billy or suzzie getting upset with us because we will be helping not only them but ourselves by not having sickly kids that are in the doctor’s office on a regular because this can be a drain on our wallet.

Bugs Bunny Story Believe, it is true

Many years ago my niece who is now in her 2o’s loved carrots as a child thanks to the bugs bunny cartoon. She loved to eat carrots because bugs bunny encouraged her to do that, that’s right he did and how was this possible and how did I know that, well

every time she ate a piece of carrots she would repeat what bugs bunny would often say and the words were “what’s up doc” and then she would start chewing away at her carrots. I mean this was not only new and funny to me but it showed me the impact bugs bunny had on her little mind. Well, all I can say is thanks a million buggsy for inspiring my niece.

Won’t it be nice to have television programs that inspire kids to eat their veggies, this would really make a parents job a lot easier when it comes to getting our children to eat their vegetables. I wonder if Popeye the sailor man and his spinach eating that gives him super strength inspire some kids to eat their vegetables. If you know of any story like this be sure and let me know I will really appreciate it.
