Super Kids Nutrition has a plethora of articles from how to raise a good eater to fun food science. There's even recipes and kids activities on the site.
Starting around this time of year, I like to buy a lot of fresh fruit. Nectarines are one of my favorites. According to Rosanne Rust, nectarines originated in China over 2000 years ago. They are low in calories, fat free, sodium free, and are a good source of Vitamins A and C. I didn't know that I should be storing my nectarines in the coldest part of my refrigerator in a plastic bag. Nectarines do have higher pesticide levels so you should look for organic nectarines. I'm lucky to have a good organic market near me that has great produce.
Another interesting tidbit I learned is that having your family sit down for meals together is important. Family dinners have been found to be associated with better grades, less risk-taking behaviors, more courteous children, positive emotional well-being, and healthier diets. I guess my husband is going to have to let me buy that new kitchen table I wanted.
