Ideally, a fruit a day keeps the doctor away. Often as not, I've said this to my kids. In fact, we have some display of pictures in our kitchen wall that says it. Though they love fruits and vegetables but also love's to eat anything that is put on the table. The truth is, I'm having hard time battling with their appetite, they seems to eat more and more each meal especially my 6 years old son. Admittedly, my fault for tolerating such habit. Should have stick with a child portion. Now my son is a little blob already and weighs more than a 6 year old should be. So, my ultimate goal this year is to always give him a little less portion of food in every meal time and more on fruits and veggies. Without a doubt, he has got his Daddy's appetite and mummy to the extent. But not too late to make a move and start him getting fit. Before the end of this year, I'll assure he'll trim down, whatever it takes. Either giving-up the meat or simply a well balance-diet. More fruits & veggies - no, to more calories and carbohydrates. I must say, we have been good for the past few weeks, been very active too, so it's definitely a good start. Health is wealth after all. By the way, this is how much we consumed for half of the week.
