Family Food Fix Day 1

I printed off the Eat the Rainbow trackers for my littles. They’re 6 and 8 and eat pretty healthy, but were excited to “track like Mommy.”

The bright colors and rainbow theme make it really kid friendly!

Here’s some things we learned from day 1:

Activity levels are really different than what we thought. One of my kids is considered sedentary, the other is considered moderately active. While I feel like they’re active, like the creator says, we often think the noise level means they’re active. 2 girls = lots of noise.

Because of the activity level adjustments, my kids are close to the same portions, but the little one actually gets a bit more than the big one, but she can’t totally handle it (More on that later)

Like their Mama, both my girls are healthy fat addicts. The big one tried to make her own lunch with the instructions to “combine a few colors at each meal!” She made herself a chicken slice/cheese stack. Hubby intervened when he saw how much cheese. It ended up being the equivalent of 5 servings!

The Little Bear has a very little tummy. She’d pick what she wanted to combine for each meal and end up being unable to finish it all. We will keep working on feeding her smaller meals more often, which is actually the way we should all eat to prevent stretching our stomachs out!

On to day 2!

They enjoy filling in the bubbles and combining the colors!
