Other items that fall into this category include; donuts, cakes, pies, you know anything sweet that most people love…haha. As I stressed in an earlier blog, instead of cookies, snack cakes or the like why not have some fruit, dried fruit, heck even air popped popcorn is better for you than cookies, cakes, pies and snack cakes.
I am not here to judge anyone for what they eat or put into their body. I for one am far from perfect, but as someone who is trying to make smarter food choices I am wanting to give you other alternatives as well.
One thing that I do want to stress though is that you as a individual have every right to eat whatever you want. The only thing I ask though is, as far as those people out there who are parents, please give your children healthier options. They deserve healthy food and options in their life. I see so many children out there who are under 5 years old who eat a lot of snack cakes, drink caffeine, eat chips, etc and it couldn’t make me more upset. Parents who allow their children to eat these kinds of things are setting them up for what is the beginning of a kind of dependence on unhealthy foods, which can lead to a life of health problems and unhealthy living. You owe it to your children to not to take them down that road.
Below are some healthy alternatives to cookies and snack cakes, give them a try.
