EATING HEALTHY WITH FAMILY
Food is a subject that concerns everyone. Parents want our children to eat well, healthy, but sometimes it is so difficult that parents aren’t capable to make it. Women want to eat without getting fat, and men, increasingly, too. But ultimately what concerns us most is health and what we eat is closely related to a healthy living: we are what we eat, and therefore we have to watch a little this in our daily day and try to know what suits us. Of course we can make exceptions, and obviously everyone can choose what seems best for him and for his family. The impositions are never good, whatever color they are, although some seem to think they are.
Trinitat Gilbert has written a book, A LA TAULA I AL LLIT AL PRIMER CRIT, for parents concerned about their children’s eating habits. We are not facing a book on how to get your children to eat, but to eat healthy, consciously, and grow up healthy and with ingrained habits. Without being alarmist, the author proposes that all of us follow guidelines and extend them to our children, but not without being obsessed with the subject. In short, “Worry about what you eat every day and not for what you do one exceptional day.” It is a book to read in one sitting and where you can learn many things, or at least think about them.
The start of the school year is the ideal time to make an attempt to eat better. If we think that there is something that we do better, let’s do it. Because parents are not born knowing everything, and reading good advice is always a good way to learn.
“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well” Virginia Woolf
