Mom Said It Was Okay

 I do not drink soda. I stopped a few years back upon discovering that the aspartame in my favorite diet soda was the source of my migraines. Seven years later I am migraine and soda free. A few years back I bought a Soda Stream so my kids would not be drinking High Fructose Corn Syrup. I figured I should probably care as much about their health as I do about mine. Over time I have noticed that they are frankly too lazy to make their own soda. I

Can I Have A Bag of Chemicals?

 After I had kids I began to have migraines. Anyone who has had migraines know how debilitating they are. I was home with my preschool kids ans some days I could not open my eyes. It was horrible. So I went in search of a solution and long story short I found out that the nutra sweet in the Diet soda I drank gallons of each day was the culprit. So I stopped drinking soda all together about 8 years ago.

Because of my experience with the migraines and later a tumor that was removed, I became very aware of what I am feeding myself and my kids. So we started on our journey to eat real whole non processed organic foods. Which, like many things in my life, is a perfectly reasonable intellectual choice. The problem is that I have kids. Kids are neither reasonable nor intellectual. My kids still wanted to eat the horrible processes chemicals that came in shiny bags and clear wrappers. And I would tell them "Honey that is just a bag of chemicals, it is not real food."  Or when we were out and they wanted a
drink at a restaurant, Airborne in particular wanted things like Hi C punch or Fanta. I would say to him " Honey that is like red dye number 5 with a shot of cancer. in it." Unfortunately my kids have adapted. Now they come and ask "Mom can I have this bag of chemicals?" or " May I please have a glass of red dye number 5?"

Exactly how do you win with these guys?
