SIMPLE WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
Make sure your toddler gets the extra fat she needs, while staying slim yourself. You know your little one needs a diet higher in fat than you'd care to consider for yourself. Here's how you can blend her needs with the needs of the rest of the family and avoid turning into a short-order cook:
• Consider adding fat to your child's snacks rather than to the entire family meal. Cheese cubes or full-fat yogurt are two choices.
• Rather than buying a gallon of milk when you shop, consider switching to one-half gallon of skim and a separate one-half gallon of whole milk instead.
• Sauteing vegetables in olive oil can be a tasty and healthy way to add fat content.
