I like the tip for the 13th...

"Suggest walking
more than
driving. If you have
errands to run, and your
destination is within
two miles from home,
walk or bike with the
kids to get there. Enjoy
the great outdoors and
slower pace."

My kids like all kinds of pizza. Homemade, store bought, mini-pizzas made out of English muffins. We can often get 6 English muffins for $1.

My younger boy loves spaghetti. He could eat it every day.

Grilled cheese sandwiches are popular.

So is almost any kind of sandwich put in a bun!

Veggies are not really popular with my kids, but they love carrot sticks - if I peel and prepare them. They can not be bothered to do it themselves.

They also will eat fruit faster if it has been cut up and put in a bowl.

We had homemade pizza for lunch today.

It is cheap and a real kid pleaser!

My husband prepared the pizzas before we went to church and we just popped them in the oven when we got home.

Tip #1 from that calendar

Maintain an upbeat attitude.

Healthy habits should be fun. If you're having
a good time, your kids will also look forward
to nutrition and fitness instead of
dreading it.

I love that tip!

It's not always easy to do. Sometimes we feel so waited down with our problems that we do not feel upbeat. Sometimes we have to push ourselves to look for the fun.

However, if we do, we generally can find it!

October is Family Health Month - or so I read over on the October motivational calendar page - www.sparkpeople.com/resource/calenda
r_
2007-10.pdf
. Maybe it was just in 2007, I don't know.

Regardless, many of us have kids or grandkids or work with kids...

Let us gather tips and recipes for families with young children. We want to get kids started off in life on the right foot!
