Measuring out my food has become something that I do all the time. I know that I should of done it long before because my idea of a serving size was never the idea of a serving size that was on the package. I have attempted to teach my daughter this.
There are endless possibilities of junk food, quick ready meals with enough sodium in them for a week and new cereals that have more sugar then anything else. I told my daughter that she can eat what she likes but in moderation. That is the problem I think with Americans. We are in such a hurry nowadays that we make quick meals with to much fat or hit the drive thru. I don't want her to have eating issues like I did but I want her t be aware of the info on the back of the packages. If I can get her to eat healthy now then I will have a better chance. I now catch her reading serving sizes. She was in shock when she saw some of the sizes. I only hope that it doesn't not turn into anything bad. That I am teaching her the healthy way to do things!
