Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

yeah, simple. stop buying junk and start buying fresh produce, and lean meat. when i was growing up, you ate what was served, or you went hungry. there was no such thing as a seperate special meal for me just bc i didnt like what was cooked. i understand the need for you to maybe eat something different from the rest of your family if you are trying to lose weight. check out foodtv.com you would be amazed at how much cheaper it is to buy fresh produce, than cookies, chips, and soda.

heres a great breakfast recipe for you, and your family. my 20 month old goes nuts for this:plain greek yogurt (low in fat and sugar, but loaded with protein), fresh fruit cut up (strawberries, kiwi, bananas, etc, whatever you like), and top it with granola, or multi-grain cheeerios. a dash of cinnamon, and a TINY drizzle of honey. by tiny, i mean MAYBE 1/2 teaspoon.

Breakfasts should be easy - you can have fruit and yogurt or a healthy cereal.Lunches - you can make your own salad or healthier sandwiches.Evening meal suggestions - lasagne (wholemeal pasta, low fat mince, lots of veggies) with salad, chicken curry (make with tin tomatoes for the sauce and no cream) and plain basmati rice, casseroles, grilled chicken with veg, fish with salad or veg.You may find a steamer helps - you can steam chicken and fish in one layer, veg in another.  Your family may add sauce after whilst you keep yours plain.   You can make potato wedges healthier than chips for the whole family too.

bamboo steamers are great! they help to lock in the veggies nurtrients, which are often lost when cooked in a pot of water. you can put your meat on the bottom rack, and veggies on top. i bought mine at an asian grocery store for around $4. whole grain bread and pasta, lots of fresh fruits/veggies, and lean meat are some of the best foods to aid in weight loss.

That does sound good. Your daughter is eating all that at 7 months? My daughter will be 5 months at the end of this week and we are lucky to get a little bit of cereal and some bananas down the hatch.
