What is the SAD Diet doing to Our Children?

When we eat a diet that is full of processed, denatured foods, we are going to live in a body that is ridden with disease. It is obvious that the above food list is not what our ancestors ate 50 years ago and strays far away from Great Grandma Betsy’s wisdom: “Eat your fruits and veggies everyday! Stay away from sugar, it will rot your teeth.”

The body can not complete it’s normal functioning on a diet consisting of Hostess Ho- Ho’s , Fritos and “McFrankenstien” Nuggets.

In the nutrition world, we have seen profound positive effects with children both physically and emotionally when reducing or eliminating the above foods and simply giving the child more fruits and vegetables and less processed, foods and sugar. If you suspect your child is sick, take a look at what’s in your cupboard, it may give you some clues as to why.

So, the next time you are in line at the fast food drive thru or your local grocery store, take the time to pay attention to what you’re eating. You will give the gift of health eating to your child. Frankly, it might just save your child’s life.
