Health-Conscious Kids

Driving home from school today, Little Boo announced from the back seat that he was getting hungry. So I suggested he grab a treat from the treat basket (assortment of gummy candies and small chocolate bars mostly).

"No Mommy. I want something healthy."

How proud am I? Kid passed up candy for a healthy snack!

So, I did a quick backpack check at a red light, and handed him a bag of grape tomatoes he had left-over from recess. And I told him I thought he was pretty smart to be making such a healthy choice, and that I was proud of him. His response?

"Well, Mommy, I want to eat healthy things to keep me from getting sick. It only makes sense."

Indeed it does, kid. Indeed it does.
