Healthy and Not So Healthy – keeping it real

Kinley is about 2,5 years old now and has always been a healthy kid. She lived on breast milk for a long time and when she started solids she ate almost anything given to her. Even “Gravad lax” and her favorite was smoked mackrell.

But lately, I feel stressed about her food. Kinley eats oatmeal with banana and blueberries for breakfast. Fruits as a snack later in the day. However, for lunch, all she will accept is a pasta with butter. I can’t make her eat any greens except for when I trick her into drinking a special smoothie. A special recipe I make with mangoes, banana, milk, and spinach.

I seriously don’t have time to make her that smoothie every day. And I need her to eat fish and other veggies but she just refuses. So I have no idea what to do? All I ever read is that kids need fish and omega 3 etc so I’m kind of stressing about the fact that she isn’t getting any at the moment.

I have dealt with the pressure around Kinley eating enough, eating healthy, eating balanced, by breathing out and knowing I provide healthy options. Some days she will eat it and sometimes she won’t. I can continue to expose her healthy options and not give up. Make eating a positive experience. Always.

Pizza, never a problem! At least it has some tomatoes on it  :=O

Sicily – Travel with Kids

April is all about Vacay! – parental leave is no longer as calm as the first months with Bei. He’s a big boy now, moving around our last furniture and showing his will. Both his parents are tired, it been a long winter with 8 months of sleep deprivation. It’s tiring looking at the same walls all day long, especially now with most of our home is a downscaled baby proof home.

So how did we manage, first we picked a destination, where We feel safe! The Biggest hurdle is down. So off we went to Sicily! We took a place close to water, so it would make an easy access, and decided that it needed to be so beautiful that we could stay put – And IT was!

Then there was the sun – how to keep this boy occupied during the brightest hours. So morning stroll with mum or dad at 9 and then a nap in the shade until he woke up. A little swim and then the lunch inside. At 3 we bring him out under an umbrella that is kept in the shade until he naps again. The remaining time the sun can easily be handled with clothes, a cap and some organic sunscreen on hands and feets. Bei loved to swim – so that’s What we did! When we didn’t eat!
