Over­whelmed and con­fused by what to feed your fam­ily?

Parenting - - Real Life -

Claire wants to break down the stress many peo­ple feel when it comes to pre­par­ing food for their fam­i­lies. She sug­gests look­ing at it like this. Like many things in life, nu­tri­tion is a spec­trum. At one end of the spec­trum are peo­ple who con­stantly eat highly pro­cessed junk food washed down with sug­ary drinks – not at all rec­om­mended. At the other end of the spec­trum are peo­ple who grow as much of their food as pos­si­ble, know the ori­gin of ev­ery­thing they eat and drink pu­ri­fied wa­ter – this works for some peo­ple but is not prac­ti­cal for ev­ery­one. Many of us are some­where in the mid­dle, where there is al­ways room for im­prove­ment. “For most peo­ple,” says Claire, “it’s a case of ask­ing this: 'Over the course of this year, what changes can I make to the way my fam­ily and I are eat­ing that will im­prove our over­all health and vi­tal­ity?”
