Looking after my children’s, mine and my husband’s health is definitely the most important thing for me. I think we are a very sporty family, love so many different kinds of sports, and also would say we try to eat healthy food. I am always so proud when Isabelle has a play date, and her friend’s mum reports she ate everything, even the vegetables. I think we are extremely lucky as she has never been a fussy eater, and to be honest I get easily stressed these days so wouldn’t even know how to cope with that. Of course she has her favourites, but when I tell her she has to eat at least a bit of something she is not that keen on eating, she still eats it. Luckily there isn’t anything she thinks is “disgusting”, as of course I wouldn’t make her eat anything she would find repulsive.
There are days that I feel like a super mum as I manage to control everything, I know exactly what both girls ate, and that way I know the “healthy meals” column is ticked for the day. These would mostly be the weekend as I can never really know what Isabelle really ate at school. I am not a fan of lunch boxes, and have mentioned this here before. For me it needs to be a hot lunch, a proper meal. But I think this has to do something with the fact I was brought up in the Czech Republic, where lunch is the main meal of the day, and dinner isn’t as important.
Anyway on the days when I cannot really know Isabelle gets all the vitamins she should, I go for the vitamin supplements. I came across a few that taste nice and she enjoys eating them. I often take fish oil supplements myself, and if you are or are planning to get pregnant don’t forget about the folic acid too. A very important think to do for your developing baby as it is scientifically proven that it prevents spina bifida. I will never forget how beautiful my hair and nails were when I was pregnant, and really think it was due to taking all the vitamin supplements.
