Like many families, as mom of the house I am the one that does all of the shopping and cooking ……other than the occasional barbecue. Therefore, the groceries I buy and the meals I cook play an instrumental role in determining whether the food my kids eat is healthy or not.
In other words, I realized that it was really up to me if my family had the best chances of having a healthy life. I am not a doctor, or a nutritionist, yet it was up to me as the mom of the house if my kids and husband had the highest chances of living healthy. Talk about responsibility!
This was a profound insight in being a stay at home mom, yet so simple. This realization actually sparked a strong interest in me for healthy baking and cooking. I realized that as a mom, I had a direct impact on choosing the foods my children would eat, whether they were healthy or not, and I understood the importance of this responsibility.
