We have three fit active sports mad and growing teenagers eating with us at home and our meals tend to reflect their needs and support their activities. We eat together morning and evening. If I’m hungry I eat the carbs but will always favour green leafy vegetable combinations over squash and sweet potato as this works for me. The kids like these better and tend to avoid green leafy vegetables if at all possible (you see nothing changes across the generations)!!We eat together as a family. No-one is singled out for special food because they are on a diet, no-one is treated different. We value the time together.
Make it simple, make it real.
