I really wish I had known when the kids were young what I know now.. about health and nutrition. I just finished baking and decorating his favorite traditional baked boxed cake for him.
I wish when they were growing up I gave my children what so many fortunate children are getting today - wholesome, living, raw, organic foods.. so many more parents are gaining an awareness of how to attain true health and wellness - living close to nature.
A notice just came in the mail for my daughter to get an immunization vaccination for diptheria and tetanus. I think this is the last vaccination notice I will get the last one she is required to have. Why wasn't I aware of the dangers these vaccinations could present later on in life. It seemed when they were young that it was in their best interest, for their best health. Everyone was doing it. I didn't think about it. I went with the flow. I didn't question it.
By the time I realized the difference that eating more naturally - raw and organic - could make.. my kids were teenagers. I have since apologized to them ..and explained that I feel badly for not having known the difference ..but now they are old enough and will have to decide for themselves what they choose to eat.
& no matter how much a Betty Crocker cake is filled with love - it's still harmful and full of baked white flour and processed, unknown, undecipherable ingredients.
This is the way of our world - and we keep on learning.
