Combining Fun and Nutrition for My Picky Eater

Confession:: My five-year-old third child is a picky eater, except of course when it comes to junk food. Offer him chicken and broccoli, and he’s “not hungry”, but can somehow find plenty of room for chips, cookies, and embarrassingly, soda. Yes, I know. A five year old shouldn’t even know what soda is, much less ask to finish off his dad’s Dr. Pepper 10 every evening. But here we are. 

This summer, I am determined to instill healthier eating habits in all my children, but especially my cheeky five year old. My strategy is to first offer healthier options more consistently, and especially entice my mini soda-lover to drink healthier beverages. Ok, you say, how am I going to do that? With good2grow.

Combining Fun and Nutrition for My Picky Eater

good2grow is a company whose products combine fun and nutrition in juices, waters and milks to inspire kids to eat and drink healthier. When it comes to kids, good2grow sticks only to the good stuff, inside and out. good2grow products have no artificial ingredients and are non-GMO.

All this is great, but my son really isn’t going to care about the nutritional aspect of these drinks because he will be so excited about the packaging. good2grow waters, juices and milks all come in re-closable bottles topped with one of over 200 licensed characters! My son is a Marvel fanatic, and he will probably drink anything I give him if it has one of his favorite super heroes on the bottle. He will also love the bottles with Paw Patrol, Minions and Puppy Dog Pals.

Sneaking In the Good Stuff

My son loves drinking milk, especially if it’s flavored and disguised as a treat. We will definitely be adding good2grow’s newest product to our shopping list: ready-to-go organic MILK in strawberry and chocolate. Both flavors of these delicious drinks are great sources of vitamins A and D, plus they have 8 grams of protein per serving. And of course, they are free of artificial ingredients and are topped with a fun licensed character. good2grow’s Organic MILK is perfect for kids on the mooove, as we plan to be this summer (anyone else feel like they need a secretary to manage their kid’s summer activities schedule?)

Elizabeth was raised in Houston and met her husband Ryan shortly after graduating from Texas A&M with a journalism degree. A few years later, Grayson {Sept 2010}, turned Elizabeth’s world upside down, not only with his sparkling blue eyes and killer smile, but with his profound disabilities and diagnosis of Mitochondrial Disease. After two years of navigating the world of special needs parenting, Elizabeth and Ryan were blessed with Charlotte {Jan 2013} and Nolan {Sept 2015}, perfectly completing their party of five. Elizabeth and her crew live in Katy, and when she can steal a few moments for herself, she can be found out for Mexican food and margaritas with girlfriends, binge-listening to podcasts and audiobooks, or trying once again {unsuccessfully} to organize her closet. In addition to her role as Managing Editor of HMB, Elizabeth writes about faith, politics and special needs parenting for publications like Scary Mommy and HuffPost.You can connect with Elizabeth on Facebook,Twitter, Instagram, or
