Wordless Wednesday: Healthy Eating

This week we asked: What does healthy eating look like?

(Read more about Feeding With Love and Respect and Healthy Living on our resource pages, and enjoy this week’s articles on the theme.)


From Shannon: “I think an important foundation for healthy eating is learning to make good choices. We set up this snack drawer, full of nonperishable snacks so our daughter could make her own choices from an early age. The drawer above holds things she needs help with like peanut butter, and fresh fruits and veggies are just steps away.”

From Melissa: “We believe healthy eating starts with a positive food relationship. Our girls are always welcome to participate in the food process—gardening, purchasing foods, preparing meals, and of course, eating. Left to right, top to bottom: 1. choosing vegetables at the farmers market, 2. natural-duration breastfeeding, 3. eating fresh veggies from the garden, 4. enjoying the fruits of the season, 5. apple picking, 6. tasting veggies at the market, 7. shucking corn, 8. a color-filled salad, 9. washing and preparing vegetables.”
