Picky Eaters

One of the biggest challenges I face as a mom trying to promote a curative lifestyle is getting the picky eater(s) in my house to eat healthfully. My middle son, Alex, has been a very picky eater since infancy. He is one of those kids that picks one or two things that he likes, and will ONLY eat those things for weeks at a time. His favorite thing last year was Honey Nut Cheerios (Yikes!  I now know that they are loaded with GMOs and other yucky stuff!). Now, I only stock my pantry and kitchen with organic, non-GMO snack choices and lots of fresh fruits and veggies. Despite my best efforts, Alex still does not eat a very well-balanced diet. He has started eating some fruits and veggies, like strawberries, bananas, and broccoli, but that’s about it. I have relied on a multivitamin to give Alex that extra boost of nutrition that he does not regularly get from diet. Recently, I read that some of the popular kids’ multis have some rather undesirable things in them, like aspartame,  Blue #2, Red #40, Yellow #6, GMO corn starch, hydrogenated oil, and other toxic substances. So, I set out to find some that were safe, healthful, and non-toxic. These are a couple that I am trying, and in the meantime, we will keep encouraging Alex to get his nutrients from whole, organic foods!
