Cook Healthy Meals For Your Children
At Manhattan's Private Calhoun School Chef Robert Surles cooks
healthy meals for his Kids. "Chef Bobo " as he is called, cooks
from scratch, keeps the portion sizes small, and provides healthy
food instead of the preservative loaded, high sugar junk that most
students are asked to consume.
He states that " studies have shown that it may take up to 15 times
of tasting something before a child will like it." So rather than
give in, Chef Bobo, will keep putting out his healthy food dishes
until his students find the particular dishes they like.
He also tries to avoid any food that has corn syrup in it. He feels
this is one of main reason that diabetes is running rampant in our
children is that corn syrup is so prevelant in all of our foods. One
of his examples is ketchup. Ketchup has more sugar in it than ice
cream and he will not serve it to his students.
One of his recipes is for Rutabaga fries, which are tossed in olive
oil, salt and pepper, and then cooked in a convection oven.
So you parents need to get on the bandwagon. You need to buy
healthy foods from the grocery store, like lean meats, fresh
vegetables, fresh fruit each week. You need to cook your meals from
scratch and avoid the frozen prepared meals in the freezer aisles,
which are pumped full of preservatives and sugars. You need to take
the time and effort to plan and out and prepare healthy meals each
Give your child the gift of health! All of your effort will be worth
it, and they will be able to carry this habit of health with them
when they go out on their own .
