Organic Cradle Bedding and more!

I won a giveaway!

I'm so happy about this, too, because my best friend is expecting her first baby in December and I wanted to win this for her.

I never win anything!

Check out Naturally Good for a kajillion great natural products.

Speaking of natrual stuff... I've decided to use a more natural approach to feeding my kids for the time being. Yesterday after Munchkin lost her mind all day we discussed that perhaps the high amount of preservatives and sugar in her diet was causing her to have a hard time behaving.

So we agreed to lower sugar intake drastically and cut out as many preservatives as possible.

Before they would have had Gogurt, JIF and grape jelly on Dandee bread, fruit snacks, chips and some KoolAid. A sugar and preservative OVERLOAD.

Today I baked whole wheat bread from scratch, ya'll. And I served Smuckers Natural peanut butter and Simply Fruit on it. They've eaten natural potato chips and no sugar added yogurt today. They had apple juice and milk to drink.

I hesitate to believe it's working this quickly... but I haven't heard ONE fight yet today. No one has hit anyone else, no one has told me I'm the worst mommy EVER, no one has stolen anyone else's toys, no one has cried hysterically when I left for a minute to run up to the store by myself. Could it really be working THAT quickly?

Congrats on your win!
I think it's a possibility that it really has helped that quickly.
I've switched to a lot of natural & organic foods lately and I definitely see a difference here.

Congrats on the win!!! Your friend will love it.

And yes, it can work that fast! Just wait until they've been off the sugar for a week, then a month... it only gets better. One of my favorite books that talks a lot about making this sort of change is called "Disease Proof Your Child" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. He's pretty radical; we don't follow everything to a "t", but you'd find a lot of valuable info there, stuff that makes a huge difference.

Thanks again for visiting my site!

Yes, it could be working that quickly. All it takes for things to sprial out of control at our house is one day of too much of that kind of stuff. The worst offenders seem to be high fructose corn syrup (which is in EVERYTHING, it seems, even crackers and ketchup) and artificial ingredients. I have switched to the "no sugar added" applesauce, juices and fruits, and buy things without HFCS, and I notice a huge difference. Good for you for doing this!

And thanks for the nice comments at my place. It's so nice to meet new people. Looking forward to getting to know you better.
