SWEETS to the SWEET!

By:
Chronicles-logo

So, yes, your concern is a valid one, but for the many families that stock up on nosh all year round, summertime goodies is just par for the course.

To our credit, more and more of us are coming around to appreciate the value of wholesome foods and proper nutrition. And the good news is that a treat now and then is no cause for alarm. Most of us have grown up sneaking candy bars behind our parents’ backs and being none the worse off for it. As we mature, we learn to differentiate between the good and the bad for us and try to make good choices.

As Sukkos arrives and Simchas Torah is soon upon us, you can bet that the Candyman’s popularity with the kids (and some adults) will skyrocket. Sweet treats le’kovod Simchas Torah is a tradition, but that doesn’t mean that children shouldn’t be taught limitations.

In fact, the best way to shape our children’s eating habits is by practicing what we preach. Making healthy changes in our nosh cabinets as well as in our own diets will have a greater influence on our children’s food choices than any amount of lecturing or scolding.

Wishing all our readers a joyful, inspiring and delicious Yom Tov!
