Yummmmm kids milkshake. Did you know the research shows that parents who show high levels of diet restriction and control toward their toddlers eating are more likely to end up with a child who is obese. Yet on the other hand kids who are exposed to to regular high sugar, high processed fat and high salt snacks, drinks and processed meals are also more likely to end up obese. Sometimes this nutrition stuff is a minefield 🧐, can we do anything right??

I guess as parents we have to walk this path as best we can, letting our kids eat to their appetite, exposing them to mostly healthy options, and allowing a variety of sometimes foods here and there….So after sandcastles and wave jumping this morning we enjoyed milkshakes and toasted banana bread at the beach cafe. Superb way to spend the morning.
