The Younger The Better


Guess what?

The other day …

Yours truly did a quick glance at the kids new school’s menu

And guess what I saw?


I told my kids and they exclaimed

“Mommy oh my goodness…what are we going to eat on that day?”

Looks like you’re going to be tasting some brown rice.

It was going to be served with a side of grilled chicken and some veggies.

Then they reported me to one of their grandmothers…

The nerves …

My own mother…

Her reply: “Oh that’s good
I’m so proud of you for eating healthy”

They didn’t know the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree…

She (their grandmother =my mother) went on:
“Good job eating healthier early…
I wish I had brown rice when I was younger”

They asked to speak to grandpa …

But grandpa was not available on the video call …

Me: in the background laughing with pure glee

“You know it’s ONCE a month it’s on your menu”

Try it… it is fibrous but good for you!

As you get used to it… ONCE a month… you may be surprised that you grow to like it”

This is a post!

It is also a “introduce your kids to healthier food options… so it’s not such as hassle as they get older”

I come in peace and with brown rice,
Dr. Olabintan
