So, what was your diet like growing up and how does it compare with your current eating habits?
I never realised until I had DS how sugary my diet was growing up.
I always had sugar on my porridge/cereal from when I was a baby, fruit juices all the time, rarely water (my sister's front teeth completely rotted), I had a small bookshelf full of McD's toys which must mean I ate it A LOT.
These days I generally like to eat well. I meal plan to make sure we're getting lots of nutrition in each meal, although, I do have brief periods where I eat waaaay more junk than I should.
I also have a massive sweet tooth but that seems to be a hangover from my pregnancy.
We're trying to be more consistent with our healthy eating habits in the hopes that it'll rub off on DS long term.
My mother's eating habits are still very much the same, if not worse (she's addicted to soft drinks and eats blocks of chocolate daily), and she bugs me all the time saying I'm "depriving" DS because I don't let him eat refined sugars or processed foods.
Has how you ate growing up affected what you feed your kids?
