    "Good source of 7 vitamins and minerals". In what universe is that a good source of anything?

    I remember when Kellogg's had to withdraw an ad for Coco Pops that claimed it contained your entire daily requirement of calcium. Who needs to feed their kids milk, yoghurt, cheese and fresh vegetables when they can eat chocolate and sugar for breakfast and get super strong bones?

    I wonder if she fed her kids bodybuilder shakes instead of breatfeeding?

    ^She probably just substituted sweetened condensed milk. I think even protein shakes would be too healthy for that.

She recommended against juice saying it is healthier to give the child the actual fruit and if I really wanted to use juice it should be diluted to 2/3 water and 1/3 juice. Now at 21 my kid drinks water non-stop or gaterade when the coach forces it on them. She will drink milk but prefers to get calicum through other sources.
    This is exactly what we did. Now at 4 and 5, my kids always reach for water, and it's extra awesome that we finally have a fridge with a water dispenser so they can just refill their own cups. So many parents just go for the juice or chocolate milk, but to my thinking, it's one of those things we can definitely control - they've never known what they're "missing" and they never learned to associate beverages with "sweet". I'm sure at some age they'll discover pop or chocolate milk for themselves but at least they'll have had many years without and they'll likely always appreciate plain water when they're thirsty. We even give the eldest a reusable bottle of water in his lunch, and even if all his friends are bringing juice boxes, he doesn't seem to care.

    This is exactly my strategy. My husband and I pretty much just drink water, coffee, tea, or booze. I will drink a diet pop every now and again but I consider it a treat, I aim for Splenda or Stevia-based ones when I can, and to be honest, if it comes down to it I'd rather deal with a bit of aspartame every now and again than all that sugar (plus I really, really prefer the taste of diet).

    My kids still think pop is a "grownup" drink and they find the bubbles painful if they put their faces up to my glass.

    Cereal pisses me off, by the way. It's not just the obvious sugar cereals - do you guys know how hard it is to find any cereal not loaded with sugar? Even fucking All-Bran? Like the second or third ingredient is sugar (and it still tastes like ass). I think plain Cheerios and Shredded Wheat may literally be the only ones. It's also crazy expensive these days compared to what I remember from when I was a kid.

    I *still* find the bubbles painful in soda. Nearly 40 and never got over that. Good thing is I never, ever want soda. I've even learned to like coffee and tea with no sugar or even splenda.

    And the cereal thing reminds me to look up the sugar content of my Nature's Path Bran Flakes...I do love Cheerios with bananas or almonds added.

    have you tried making your own granola?
    it's super easy and you can measure the amount of sugar/honey you put in it. i don't really eat cereal but i make granola every once in a while, keep it in a sealed jar and have it with yogurt. i don't put any dried fruit in mine so it's just oats, different kinds of nuts and seeds, some honey and vegetable oil.

    pop tarts and toaster strudel - are these supposed to be the processed food equivalent to a real apfelstrudel?



    and why use ketchup for spaghetti when you could simply use sieved tomatoes instead - it doesn't take any longer and is actual food.

    Because sieved tomatoes aren't loaded with sugar. Duh.

    I'm with you - I don't understand jarred pasta sauce at all. My mom buys it and adds meat and spices to it, but it's still sickeningly sweet tasting to me. It's exactly the same amount of effort to add meat and spices to a can of tomatoes and it doesn't reek of corn syrup.

    and if you buy imported italian canned tomatoes they don't have any sugar, just a bit of salt.

    That's exactly what I'm planning to try next! I have some decent-ish cereals stockpiled but once those are gone I'm going to make some granola. My problem is devouring it like a freaking snack food though...

    a friend of mine (german, of course lol) taught me how to make it. i was blown away by how easy it is.
    the hardest part was knowing exactly when it's toasted enough to take it out of the oven. if you don't like it very toasted it's easy but i like mine quite golden and if you're not careful it goes from just right to burnt tasting in a matter of seconds.

    I can my own tomatoes so I know exactly what's in them... fresh onions, garlic, basil and oregano. Salt and lemon juice for the canning process. Two days of work in the fall, but my bff and I have been doing it for so long, we've got it down to a science. And it's sooo totally worth it.

    Canning is one of the few "old timey" skills I have (and enjoy!) I always make pepper-squash relish in the summer and apple butter in the fall. Man, I am so ready for veggie season!

    Woow, That of course is the way to go, Trixie. I wish I had the skill/patience to do this. I am sure it taste amazing.
    I make my pasta sauces with one half: a bottle of sieved tomatoes (Italian) and the other half: fresh tomatoes. If you let them cook a bit longer the water of the fresh tomatoes. I also mix carrots, unions, basil (homegrown), garlic and eggplant in it. The kids love it. I use the same sauce in my lasagna.


    Yesterday my son made the salsa from a Jamie Oliver recipe, it was so simple (a twelve year old can make it) but super tasty and healthy. I cannot wait till he makes it again
