Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies – Healthy & Clean!

on June 15, 2015

I believe it’s so important to involve children in the preparation process of any type of food, whether it be a treat, a snack or a full meal.  They learn to see different foods and will eventually learn to eat them or at least try them; exposing their palate to a variety of different tastes.  The more they are exposed to variety, the more likely to eat a wide array of foods.  Don’t forget that these little ones watch our every move and will mimic our eating habits, good and bad.  I hear parents, especially moms, complain that their children only eat certain foods and nothing else… Well, I think the parent (especially, the mother) has to look at themselves and their own eating behavior because their child is learning directly from them.  If a parent does not eat or eats very little around their child, then that child is probably not going to eat very well.  If that parent only eats 3 types of food, then that child will probably do the same.  It’s all about exposure and habit.  I try to show my daughter, Luna, the healthy lifestyle and explain how different foods affect our bodies – achy belly with processed foods, feeling energized with whole foods… As young as Luna is, she understands and asks why others eat bad food when she sees that out in public… Teaching, giving examples, communicating, exposure, goes a long way – it’s never too late or too early to start incorporating a healthy lifestyle.

Here’s a clean, healthy recipe for yummy, simple, and quick oatmeal cookies!
