“After learning that Maria’s daughter drinks a glass of Inner Eco with meals and then Jenn sharing her experience, I’ve started giving it to my 2 and 4 year olds straight. I filmed the first time for fun. I wanted to share an example of how quickly little ones can go from ‘no likes this’ to ‘yum!’ This happens all the time at our house since I started celebrating being brave with foods, implemented some incentives and rules related to mealtime, and – most importantly – stopped making it easy on them to refuse things (I used to basically expect them not to like the new food and took it promptly away at the first sign of negative response…that’s crazy to me now).
“The fact is that the support I found in this group (experiences shared, education, recommendations of truly healthy restaurants, recipes, resource websites, encouragement, new friends, etc.) gave me the confidence to take control and start making those kinds of changes last summer. Prior to that, my 4 yr old wasn’t eating a single vegetable…at all – I shudder thinking about that and am embarrassed to share it! It took several months, but now he has plain veggies as a side with meals (grudgingly but increasingly less so), greens and fruits that he hates to eat raw in smoothies, drinks quality probiotics and asks me whether new foods are organic before he eats them (that last one bites me sometimes LOL!)
“There’s no question that transition took effort and some tears, but it was a relatively short time to begin to set up their understanding of nutrition for the rest of their lives. That’s not to mention the unbelievable benefit to their tiny bodies against disease like the one that rocked my world. God is good.”
