Speak Up: What Was Your Diet Like As a Kid?

I grew up eating mac 'n' cheese, hotdogs, peanut butter and jelly (on Wonderbread, of course), and sugary cereals for breakfast. I don't remember ever eating a salad, and come to think of it, I didn't eat many vegetables at all (unless you count french fries at McDonald's). My parents just weren't big into eating healthy, but it is cool to see how we've all come around. While I love fruits, veggies, and whole grains and love teaching my girls how to select the perfect peach at the store, I have turned my mother onto brussels sprouts. Needless to say, I feel happy knowing I am taking better care of myself, but I also feel a lot better eating healthy.

So what about you? What was your diet like when you were younger? Was it much different than it is today? Did you learn healthy eating habits from your parents, or did you create your own. Tell me in the comment section below.
