This really works with kids. Give it a try:
From Sunday dinner through Friday lunch, serve your kids nourishing foods and lots of water. Friday night tell them they can eat whatever they want. From Saturday to mid-day Sunday morning offer them junk food. Sunday evening, return to serving Better Choices meals. This is an effective weaning process. In time, you will find your kids won’t crave as much junk food, even on the weekends.
Exception: Kids who play sports, perform, or have academic challenges on the weekends need to wait until after they are finished to have treats, well-deserved treats.
Kids must be active regardless of what they are eating. A sluggish circulatory system means nutrients are not being well distributed throughout the body. Unused muscles atrophy. Unused calories show up as stored fat. Whether they walk the dog, play ball, or hip hop, get your kids moving.
