    We ate so poorly during the holidays that I’m embarrased for all of us. I’ve started a new diet for the new year, and I’m trying to get the family back on a healthier track. I’ll be checking out this book in the near future. Thanks for sharing:)

    I have had almost all of the Dr Sears books about babies/toddlers in the past, and I love them. I am definitely ging to check this out. My 5 yr old has been sick with something or other since the start of kindergarten, and I know as hard as I try we don’t eat very healthy. thanks for sharing this, I had no idea that this had come out. :O)

    Sounds like a great book!

    I usually don’t overeat during the holidays, but this year I sure did. I don’t know what changed, somehow I had an apetite! And now I have 4 nasty pounds to prove it too! :)

    I will definitely look for this book. We focus on healthy foods most of the time, but I would love more ideas. I thought that we had taught both daughters well the important of health, but recently when someone rather overweight asked one of my daughters if she wanted an extra dessert, she replied very sweetly, “No, that’s what makes you fat.” Great mothering moment.

    I think diet should be at the top of the list. Healthy family is a happy family. I believe there is a strong connection between food and happiness. I notice people eating bad food have a bad temper. I’m not saying we shouldn’t eat fast food but we should limit ourselves. Organic is the way to go. It’s the way our ancestors did it.

    I only wish I would have seen this before Christmas! I know some families who have a hard time with this because they travel so much and are always on the go that sometimes fast food is the easiest way to go. I also feel that way, especially since I have been traveling so much for conferences.

    Have a great day!

    Oh and about emailing you, my computer has been down so I haven’t been on for a long time. I will email you because I would like some more insight on how to get my spiritual self in a better place, and have a better relationship with God.
