Learn les­sons of the past

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - News -

ONCE again in the news, too much sugar in our kids’ di­ets.

Maybe we should take a les­son from the wartime when many foods were on ra­tion. Where moth­ers did an ex­cel­lent job with few re­sources pro­vid­ing whole­some meals for their chil­dren. Many had a ‘grow your own’ men­tal­ity re­sult­ing in ac­tive, fit chil­dren, with few weight prob­lems and most were men­tally healthy.

In my child­hood, girls learned life­long skills, sew­ing and knit­ting. Boys looked for jobs to make pocket money and got into the habit of work­ing.

Bring up your child the way you want them to grow, healthy and happy.
