Guest Blogger: Kath of 'I Eat Real Food'

Hello Savor The Thyme readers! I am Kath, and I Eat Real Food. While I am not a mom yet, I hope to have a real food approach with my kids one day too. Expert articles written on healthy eating for kids recommend getting them involved in shopping and cooking food so they have a connection between vegetable to table.

One of my goals as a mom will be to be as enthusiastic about vegetables as I am about desserts. So many parents are overhead saying "Now Johnny, you better eat your green beans before you can have dessert." But do you ever hear parents say, "Johnny, you must finish your ice cream before you get to have some spinach." I do think there is a evolutionary connection between kids' aversion to vegetables, appeal of sugar and taste buds, but I also think the more vegetables are praised, the easier it is for kids to at least try them.

But then again, I'm not a mom yet, so I'm sure my kids will be the worst eaters of the century! But you can be sure I will try :)

And parents must also remember that nutrient deficiency do not happen overnight. If you kid had some veggies at lunch but isn't interested at dinner, it's OK.

Here are a few recipes I've done on KERF that I think would be kid friendly and fun :)

Thanks for guest blogging Kath and inspiring all of us to eat healthy and have fun with our food! Also, I am so excited to find a great food blogging foodie close by (Boston).

Just followed the link to Eat Real Food and got a bit of a surprise... that link (and the one on KERF) is definitely NSFW... luckily the links to the individual recipes are correct...
