DH and food....grrr
I think I have posted before about my dh and junk food. I try to feed the kids healthy things. When I pack their lunches they always have fruit or veggies and one "dessert" type item (chips, pudding cup, etc). I give them bottled water or juices for drinks. When they ask for snacks at home I cut up fruit or give them raw veggies with ranch or celery and peanut butter or similar types of items. When I make dinners they are lean meats, veggies, etc.
When DH cooks he makes lots of breaded dishes, loaded mashed potatoes, breads, etc. He adds salt on his food all the time (not when he cooks it but after when it is on his plate). Now the kids want to add salt to everything and I am the bad guy when I tell them they do not need to. When my dh packs lunches he includes multiple desserts, soda, etc. So when I pack their lunches I am the bad guy.
All of our kids are in good shape, none overweight. All are active and involved in sports.
My issue is that I want to set healthy eating patterns. DH says that they are kids and should be able to eat junk. I am getting tired of being the food nazi around here!!! Any ideas? I have talked to him about this many times and it does not sink in. His mom is like this with food too.....its like food is a way for them to show love.
