Now here is an adjunct article from Alison Stamas, the founding editor of She started MKG with her husband Yianni. Their daughter Lily is a patient of Dr. Eng's...

Like other moms I know, I worry about being the best mom I can be.   Sometimes I feel like I was at my most on top of my motherhood game while my baby was still in my womb and I actually had time to research statistics, trends and tips for my soon-to-be born daughter.  One of the few things I do know is that eating dinner with your family on a regular basis will bring my child confidence, help her grades in school, lower her risk for obesity and type 2 diabetes and decrease her chances of using drugs and alcohol.

 I like those odds.  What’s even sweeter is my 2 year old wants so badly for us to eat together and will even say to my husband and I “let’s eat like a family”.  The challenging part for me is finding foods that my 2 year old wants to eat that don’t belong to the cake and ice cream food groups.  Though sometimes she wins and gets to eat those things for dinner. 

Springtime makes we want to eat more natural foods given the likelihood of swimsuit donning in the not too distant future.  I recently joined a CSA with Windflower Farm and am looking forward to the challenge of incorporating seasonal fruits and vegetables into my family’s diet.
