Keep pushing and making healthy choices for your family! They will eventually get the point and help out.
Recipe makeovers are a great idea! Many of the "Traditional" kid (read "comfort") recipes are here on SparkPeople with healthy updates.
I am very lucky that my kids (9 and 11) grew up in the "take it or leave it" way of eating, so they endure most of the time. I also have an ADHD son that HATES to eat (anything) when he's in school on his medication. So *I* endure and find the things that are good and healthy for him to eat. There have been nights we go for an hour finding SOMETHING that will tickle his tastebuds and be good both.
I'm beginning to fight the xbox/computer monster, but my husband got the bright idea of requiring Kinect time before they can sit still to play on them. So my kids have to spend 30 mins playing an active Kinect game before they can sit down to play Minecraft or such thing. Now, I need to get my husband to play a Kinect game before he plays Halo! :)
Justin (my hubby) has insisted on Family Dinners since he became part of our family and I cannot thank him enough for that. So, we have fairly regular time to talk, share and laugh together. I am beginning to share healthy ideas and stories. I make sure and share my goals for myself and am beginning to see my younger son take up a few of his own.
