It is in our DNA to worry constantly about what our kids are eating. This is because, before we cared about body hair removal or good posture, we needed to feed helpless little crawlers in order to ensure the survival of our species. Safe to say, we are good on that front.
Today, those of us fortunate enough to not have to worry about where their next meal is coming from (and I don’t mean anxiety over ordering Chinese or Pizza) need to worry about something. So, we obsess over what is going into their mouths. Is it healthy? Is it organic? Saturated fats, too much sugar, not enough protein … the list goes on.
