Involve Your Kids in Food Choices for Healthier Eating Habits #Giveaway

https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js
Over nine million children in the US over the age of 6 are considered overweight or obese.  All these kids are at greater risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.  These facts are alarming.  Programs like our government’s Let’s Move! campaign and educational blogs like this one are working hard to raise awareness of childhood obesitySweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener, the only all-natural stevia sweetener with zero calories, carbohydrates and glycemic index is also committed to raising awareness of childhood obesity through promoting proper nutrition.

Studies show that one of the best ways to teach children about healthier eating is to involve them more in food choices.  When I go to the grocery store with my kids often I let them chose a different fruit or vegetable from the produce department.  Trying new flavors is exciting and offering an unusual healthy food for your kids is a wonderful learning opportunity for them.

Like most young children my kids crave sweets and sugary snacks.  The thousands and thousands of sugary packaged foods on the market today have only made the childhood obesity epidemic worse.  But you can show your kids that they can still eat sweet foods without all the added sugar.  By using SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops instead of sugar in your kids’ favorite recipes they will be able to satisfy their sweet tooth without the negative effects they get from sugar.

My children love adding a few drops of SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia to plain greek yogurt, smoothies, milk or water.  SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia drops come in these delicious flavors:

Coconut • Watermelon • Cola • Lemon Drop • Valencia Orange • Berry
Chocolate Raspberry • English Toffee • Vanilla Crème • Hazelnut • Peppermint • Root Beer
Grape • Apricot Nectar • Chocolate • Cinnamon

  • 6 oz. skim milk
  • ¼ cup orange slices
  • 4 oz. vanilla non-fat yogurt
