Holiday Tips for Grandparents

Many people will be traveling to their relatives' homes for the upcoming holidays.  While it is wonderful to see our friends and families during the holiday season, a lot of stress can be caused by the changing of our childrens' eating habits while they are there.  I remember when I was little, we used to go to my grandparent's house for Christmas.  We were rarely allowed to have soda except at their house, so it was a real treat for us to have it at Christmas.  Fortunately, my grandparents also had a lot of healthy food around for us to eat too and they never "pushed" us to eat certain foods or more food in general!   However, that is often not the case, and some families and family members may have different opinions about what your children should be eating.

I found this post on the Fooducate blog to be helpful, and it could easily be passed on to any friends or family members if you are concerned about this problem in your family!
