Is it possible that the foods we eat are causing or at least contributing to some of the behavior struggles we face with our kids?
A few years back, I read an interesting article that was published right after a terrible school shooting. This article suggested a possible link between the foods we eat and the dramatic increase in violence in children and young adults.
Now, I’m not suggesting that if you feed your child french fries, pizza, or soda that he or she will turn into a violent, angry young person. But I AM suggesting that the toxic foods we eat are contributing to some of the behaviors we see in our kids!
Did you know that there are chemicals allowed in the American food and drink industry that other countries have banned? Crazy, isn’t it?
Take a quick peek at the backs of many packaged goods and you’ll likely find artificial flavors and colors, preservatives, emulsifiers, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated vegetable oil, and glyphosate in many of them.
These man-made “ingredients” that are unfortunately found in many popular “kid” foods are causing so many issues in our bodies and minds. Take food dyes, for example. These dyes are linked to ADHD, allergies, anxiety, and asthma.
And yet, these foods are allowed by the FDA and sometimes even offered as a “healthy” option on lunch trays at schools across the country.
We are poisoning ourselves and our children and don’t even realize it! Or, maybe we do realize it, but don’t know how to make a change.
Healthy food is more expensive and our lives are so busy that it feels almost impossible to move away from boxed, frozen, or canned foods.
