|A Rainbow of Food|
It is nearly a month since our dietitian visit and I am finally following the rules. I am taking full advantage of my measuring cups and instead of pouring a full big bowl of cereal I am now measuring 3/4 cups into a small kid-sized bowl. I am serving a 1/2 bagel instead of a full bagel and I am providing more fruit mid-morning snacks as opposed to a grain product. Change is never easy though, especially for a child. Christian is not impressed with the smaller portion sizes and especially does not like the smaller portion of cereal. I am sure that it will all get easier as it becomes our routine.
Along with eating right we are also trying to be more active. Christian plays soccer twice a week and we now try to also make the optional 2 hour 'skills & drills' practice on Friday's. We are attempting to fit in more family walks and yard work/gardening. Christian has been splashing around in our little pool and we have plans for him to get in swimming lessons in the fall of the year. This is a whole lifestyle change for us and I am proud of our success so far.
