But in working in the field of data I learned that those types of foods that can affect long term health or that they can affect long term health. And more than just occasionally. Because of my love for my children I'm. Trying to cook good healthy food for them, even for breakfast. May think it's odd that I don't like to keep box cereal at my house. I think it's odd.

As a lover of nutrition and wellness, I'm aware of the long term impact, too many treats can have on my kids current and their future blood, sugar levels and cholesterol numbers so I try to cook fun, but healthy meals. One of my tricks to get them to love vegetables is to make Zucchini pancakes. It's the time for Zucchini is.
