This post is part of a series that focuses on children's and women's health, as part of a sponsored partnership with Aurora Health Care. Since January, I've been making small and gradual changes towards a more healthy lifestyle. And my kids have come along for the ride.
They work out with me in the basement (i.e. dance around me while I trip over them). They eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. And most importantly, they have a healthy role model in their daily life.
However, I can't seem to get the sugar out of their diets.
Sugar, sugar, sugar.
Everywhere I turn there's sugar. In their cereals, in tomato sauces, in yogurt tubes. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
So I've made it my mission this week to start making small changes to decrease our sugar intake. I'm taking it one meal at a time, starting with breakfast.
