Food is an amazing, wonderful, and rich nourishing for the soul. Food is much more than just the calories we fuel our body with.
- Food is a love language – its a grandmother’s freshly baked cookies, that secret family recipe handed down for generations, a meal brought to a friend with a new baby.
- Food is a comfort – that hot bowl of soup after playing in the snow, a refreshing drink on a hot and humid day,
- Food is a way to connect people together – at parties, at funerals, at weddings – when people gather together there is almost always food.
Raising a child who can see the value in food beyond the fact that cookies are yummy is not only fulfilling, it makes life easier, more fun, and creates wonderful opportunities for family bonding.
