Rhythms of Eating

As adults we know our bodies work best if we are able to eat at the same times each day.  The hardest part is usually slowing down to actually enjoy the rhythms of eating within our day.  We grab a bagel in the car on the way to work, eat leftover kid snacks while cleaning up the toddlers lunch or skip dinner because we are too tired.  None of those rhythms serve us well or set us up to take care of our littles (more on self care coming in February!).  We want to see families who create healthy eating rhythms for the children AND for the parents.  This can include bringing healthy snacks on the go, getting up a few minutes early to make a meal, or sitting down during nap time to finish you lunch.  As we are rhythmic in our own eating, we can better shepherd our children’s rhythms as well.
