This time in the home has allowed me to evaluate some of our family habits. The number one thing I noticed was our family’s diet. I have children who are 5 and 7 and somewhere in the planet of parenting I decided that my children’s pickiness determined what we would have for meals and snacks… when in all actuality, I want health to be the priority. This transition of control was not a quick or obvious one, I didn’t notice before this quarantine that I had modified my selections for their preferences.
So, what am I doing about it??? Simple, I have been slowly changing the pattern for our family. Through this quarantine in have ordered more fruits and veggies. Also, I have switched all of the regular chips for baked chips, these changes may seem small and insignificant to the average bear, but I have a plan. Small subtle changes allow my little geniuses time and appreciation for the new selection of snacks and meals. Instead of being alarmed… they are intrigued, and as a family we are creating better habits.
Have you noticed family habits that you haven’t before this quarantine? What are you going to do about it??
