I’m definitely not a health nut, but I do try to make sure I’m giving Emerson nutritious foods and starting him off with good eating habits. I let him have a piece of chocolate after dinner occasionally and have even been known to let him have syrup on his waffles in the morning.
I think moderation is a good word for the amount of sweets he’s allowed. One thing I’ve really kept him away from is sugary drinks. He doesn’t drink anything other than water and prince juice and I’d like to keep it that way as long as I can.
As he’s gotten older it’s been harder and harder to keep him away from the ‘good tasting’ drinks. Recently I’ve started giving him fruit infused water and it’s been a big hit in our house. I’ve been using the Twistshake sippy cup which allows me to water and the fruit of my choice to make infused water! It’s so much cheaper than buying flavored water from the store and as an added bonus I know exactly what is going in it!
I’ve been following the Twistshake company for a while, but I thought they only made baby bottles. You can read how the company started here, but basically they created an awesome bottle to help moms avoid the formula clumping up and logging the bottle. Anyways, after the company reached out to me I discovered they make way more than just baby bottles. I’ve fallen in love with the toddler sippy cup for a few reasons. 1. It can make infused water (duh!) 2. It doesn’t leak so I can give it to Emerson in his crib and not worry about him waking up covered in water, 3. it doesn’t use a straw piece, which is great because Emerson knows how to open his cups and is always hiding the straw.
