Have you ever used the word “diet” with your kid? Do you reward or punish with food in your home? Do you cook – and if you do, do you involve your kids? We are going to tackle the big topic of kids and food this week at our KidzVuz twitter party. We’ve all heard the scary statistics about kids and obesity, diabetes and other illnesses caused purely by poor diets in this country. And then we are bombarded by the other images – the anorexic and bulimic girls – on the other end of the eating disorder spectrum. So, how can we find a really good, healthy way to approach food and teach that to our kids?
On Wednesday, October 19th at 10pm we will be talking about food and tweens with a teacher and mom of a tween daughter, Cristie Ritz King and nutritionist and founder of Foodtrainers, Lauren Slayton. We’ll be dishing about picky eaters, creating healthy eating habits, having fun cooking together and more. Plus, it wouldn’t be a twitter party without prizes, so we’ll be giving away 2 $25 gift cards to GrubHub (because it’s also fun to order in as a family!) and a $25 gift card to Panera Bread so you can get some freshly baked bread to go with your homemade meals. (or course you could also get some yummy desserts, that’s up to you!)
So click over here and join us on Wednesday night!
