Awesome job Liz! Believe me, the world will try to redirect your kids to a SAD lifestyle, so this battle will be around for awhile. We have to constantly resist daycare, restaurants and family food choices and this can be stressful and daunting tasks. But it's worth the battle!
That's great the illnesses are far and few now. Have you thought about using a pro-biotic as extra defense in the winter? We use Culturelle (in some natural chocolate milk) and our son hasn't been sick once this year and he's in daycare 5 days a week.
Keep fighting the good fight!
Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
