Top Ten Weight Loss Boosting Snacks

Often people avoid snacking when they are trying to lose weight when in fact snacking plays an integral part. Why?

It is when you are hungry that cravings kick in and are difficult to battle. Cravings are often related to foods which are high in sugar or fat and can take anywhere up to 20 minutes to pass. But if you are hungry? It is almost impossible to cease the craving.

Krista Has Lost 8kg With The Healthy Mummy

Hi Healthy Mummy! Well I’m 2 weeks in already, being one of the Motivating Mum’s for April. Where has the time gone?? I have really enjoyed taking time every day to post up something to share with others; a healthy mummy smoothie, meal or snack from one of the amazing weight loss recipe cookbooks or showing some sort of exercise for the day. Knowing that others are going to see my progress & journey has been the kick in the butt and motivation I’ve been looking for!

The last two weeks have been quite busy in my household, with the everyday things mum’s have to do, but also having my husband home on holidays this week. I’ve also been super busy with my little home business, and have organised an online charity auction to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Australia, so my time has been split between many areas.

BUT, instead of getting too busy to stick to my healthy eating and exercise plan, I’ve instead made sure that I’m organised in those areas and lost another 2.5 kilos this fortnight, bringing my total weight loss to 8 kilos on the Healthy Mummy plans

5 Healthy Eating Meals For Fussy Toddlers

Fussy eating comes in many forms with children and certain foods, textures or even meal time environments may trigger the tantrums we all dread.

Here are a few meal ideas which may tide the fussy eating nightmare of toddler-dom over. They are all healthy eating meal options which you as mum, even if you are on a weight loss diet, can eat too.

Eating dessert

1. The first meal to give your child is the SAME as you.

Time and time again research supports that the main carer, often the mother, is the main motivator for their child to eat their meal. Even better, let your child eat off your plate.

 

One form of fussy eating is around the idea of food neophobia, the unknown of food. From an evolutionary perspective, if the child had not eaten the food before then they did not know if it was poisonous. So if you as the mother or main carer are eating it, then it is safe and therefore  they are more likely to eat it too.
