Tidbits 47–What To Feed Your Kids So They Won’t Wind Up Sick, Or Stupid!

Below I have vanilla yogurt with tangerine slices:

Kids love noodles and pasta.  But you can buy whole grain pasta and turn it from a junk food extravaganza into a nutritious meal!  I love the wild yam pasta you see below; but Shana loves the brown rice pasta:

Think of all the pasta your kids eat–macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, etc.–it’s all made of white flour meaning they’re eating nothing but a big bowl of sugar!  But it doesn’t have to be that way!  Buy whole grain pasta and REAL cheese!  You can even buy Raw Milk Cheese:

What about Cereal?  Kids love cereal.  But nutritionally speaking, commercial cereal is a disaster!  Look at what you can get at the health food store:

There’s nothing in this cereal but brown rice, that’s the only ingredient!  You can also get puffed corn and puffed wheat.  And check out the granola bins!

Here is Shana’s favorite hot cereal: Cream of Wheat.  There’s only one ingredient in this one–whole wheat.  We have to order it over the internet but it’s worth it.  www.CreamOfTheWest.com .  (Of course, the commercial cream of wheat, though delicious, is nothing but white flour–meaning, a big bowl of white sugar!)


What if your child needs something sweetened?  Here it is, raw sugar!  No, not “brown sugar”, RAW sugar!  It actually has nutrients and fiber!  How can you enhance your child’s cereal?  Add real fruit and raw milk!  Raw milk hasn’t had all the vitamins and enzymes boiled out of it!

OK, look at the time…. I’m not done, but I DO have to cook dinner now–no frozen dinners here, no microwave; so, you will have to excuse me, but, I will be back next month for Part-2.  Editor’s note: Part-2 is now ready, click below:

  • Another interesting and entertaining Tidbit by Elaine. Before I begin I want to wish you a happy birthday. Secondly, every school district has a Facebook page and this article needs to make its way on each one. Just to add a little information regarding vitamin C… when consumed in the presence of sugar, the absorption rate is dangerously low! It is a major no-no to for example have a cookie or a sugary drink with a vitamin C capsule or pill. For those that really care to boost their immune system this important fact well worth noting! Also to heal the body from candida which in some cases is the root of many problems, even whole grain breads and so forth may temporarily need to be taken out of the diet. Thank you Elaine. Keep your editorials coming please 😊

    • Hi Elaine!

      Have you heard of Moringa….would love to know your thoughts about it…. It’s being touted as “The Superfood.”

  • Six children, one income and a mother who insisted on quality foods… no one thought we could manage. We made food management and preparation a priority in our house. Much of our together time was around making cookies, muffins and cakes (no store bought, if you wanted them you had to make them, that was the rule). Coming up with healthy and tasty recipes was our competition. Involving the children made them love the food. Our sense of adventure, camaraderie and unity came from eating. Our sports, entertainment and travelling were all complimentary to this. Our children are accomplished, curious, outspoken and all very handy in the kitchen (one even became a chef). I agree wholly with Elaine Lewis, if you want smart and healthy children you have to put quality food into their bodies. Thank you for the great advice and tips on foods.
