Worrying over sugar intake.
Do you ever worry about the sugar and/or caffiene you’re intaking? Or that your kids are? We as a family, strive to watch what we put into our bodies. We don’t go overboard in anyway when it comes to dieting fads and things like that, we just try to find a good balance between healthier options, less processed food, and less sugary treats. You have to lead by example though, huh?! I cut sugar from my coffee about 3 years ago and the kids know that I did and know how I take it now (a splash of creamer). My point is, it’s harder to get kids to understand the importance of less sugars and balance when you’re munching down on some Oreos or something like that. So, I cut sugar from my coffee. My husband is a tea drinker and seems to have passed that onto our kids.
snow day fun & warm bellies
After playing in the bit of snow we finally got (making their 3 day weekend, a 4 day weekend), they asked for cups of tea to warm their little bellies. I happily obliged, especially because they’re capable of making their own teas. (But you can’t beat them asking for caffiene free, sugarless drinks!) We usually have a few varieties on hand, but lucky for them Daddy had just stocked up on Celestial Teas (their favorites!). He came home with another box of Peppermint to restock us there, but also grabbed Honey Vanilla Chamomile and Country Peach Passion as well. They did not disappoint. Maddie & David prefer the Peach (she likes it a bit sweeter than he does though), where as Owen and I are both currently loving the Honey Vanilla Chamomile. Fin has been sticking with the Peppermint, but said the Peach Passion was his second choice.
Celestial Teas comes in a WIDE variety of flavors. (To include some sleepytime teas that I NEED to try adding into my nighttime routine). They are also cheaper than other tea brands and that is a HUGE win in my book!
Have you tried them
How do you encourage your kids to eat
