Hi! I’m Lindsay, a Columbus mom, physical therapist, and author of the blog Find Where You Fit.
I like to incorporate our active lifestyles into dining by going on little picnics. The kids and I will go into the kitchen, talk about food groups, and pick some food items from each to bring along on. I find that using this strategy gives them enough rules and enough freedom that we all get what we want.
Sometimes we take it to a park, go on a short hike or hit a playground, then eat. Sometimes it’s as simple as eating in the front yard on a blanket. When we have finished eating, the fresh air tends to inspire some outdoor play rather than asking for TV. We are so happy it’s picnic season again!
Each Tuesday for the next several weeks a fellow mom/friend/community member will be sharing a fun recipe, tips to include kids in the cooking process, or a great family restaurant for “Take a Taste Tuesday.” If you are interested in sharing your eating and/or cooking fun be sure to connect with me via email!
