And speaking of food.
Last week I took snack for Monkey’s class, so I bought a rather large size of applesauce from a rather well known applesauce maker. Afterwards I was looking at the ingredients; Can you read them below?
I’d rather serve my kids smashed up apples with well water than (most likely) apple pieces and high fructose corn syrup. But I hadn’t really noticed before what went into each jar. I just like the consistency of of that healthier one. Who knew? Makes me think twice about what is in the applesauce served at restaurants in kids meals. Especially since the brand named applesauce jar was twice the size of the other jar, but cost the same.Why are the healthier foods always more expensive? Why?
Have you found any other food traps that look healthy but really aren’t? With all of the fancy packaging and marketing going on, we moms have to be really careful. Do you have any good, but cheap, health foods? I’ve got four men to feed on a budget, peeps!
Our grocery bill has moved up a notch in the past few months. Monkey now eats like a boy and not a toddler and the Bogster, well, he’s a tank, he eats like a man. So I am on the look out for some easy-on-the-budget healthy foods.
And just in case you were wondering here’s what my plate looked like at the end of lunch.
Have a good weekend.
Okay, lets try that again…
