It's Thursday! Hope your week has been happy and healthy.

The WebMD Parenting Guest Expert Tanya Altmann, MD, FAAP has a great post up "5 Steps for Healthier Kids ".

I particularly like this observation: "As a parent, it's up to you to be the role model of healthy habits for your family. I rarely see a child who has a healthier diet than his parents."

Even though some of these steps might not apply to a 6 - 9 month old, it reminded me that I need to make good choices too.

Sooooo...I'm going to pass up that gigantic chocolate chip muffin that I want for breakfast! (brought home by the husband)

Feedback is always welcome! Now go drink some water (step #1)
