Hugs Deadnskinny: that is my fear...but my soon to be ex is moving 4 hours away, so the kids might spend a weekend with him once a month (he CAN get them more than that, but I dont think he will)...but I hate the idea of them getting sick at all. Your daughter sounds very smart and self-aware.
I think I am going to aim towards a Weston A Price type WOE. I have lots of heritage rice (though they prefer the white rice as it is served in Chinese food restaurants), and they love raw milk, but I have to find a way to make it taste like chocolate without the HFCS. Maybe cocoa and honey? Going to work on a good homemade bread recipe that will make tasty grilled cheese and peanut butter and honey sandwhiches. homemade cookies instead of oreos, that kind of thing. Mostly I want to stay away from store bought, transfat, HFCS processed type stuff. The apartment we are moving into has a large playground and a kiddie pool with a splash pad, so I plan to wear them out and make them hungry and then pull the bait and switch with healthy food. :P
I hate Spongebob with the passion of ten thousand suns. We mostly watch Nick Jr, Disney, and Sprout. For my own sanity...
It's just another day in paradise
As you stumble to your bed
You'd give anything to silence
Those voices ringing in your head
You thought you could find happiness
Just over that green hill
You thought you would be satisfied
But you never will-
Learn to be still
