Welcome to another episode of the Parenting Toolbox podcast. In this episode, Marishu and rockstar co-host Colin talk about healthy treats for kids!
As parents, we only want what’s best for our kids – and knowing how chemically laden food are nowadays, it’s always in our best interest to find out which snacks are safe and healthy for our children. During this conversation, Colin and I share our own personal stories on how we make sure our children stay healthy, without compromising the “treat” aspect of snacks.
Teaching kids to be mindful of what they eat is a great foundation for them when they grow up – so they may choose the better, safer, healthier alternatives rather than go the quick-and-easy route when it comes to food. This also set this up for when they become parents themselves.
