If we’re going to all this trouble to raise healthy children, we can’t ignore the call to provide nutritious food for them, too. Feeding the Fit Family, the fifth book in the Life as a Fit Mom eBook series, includes strategies, tactics and recipes for nourishing picky kids with healthy meals. In Feeding the Fit Family, Kara Douglass Thom exposes her garden fails and triumphs; shares the meals that don’t make her kids gag, and how she handles disparaging remarks about her cooking (not well). The Life as a Fit Mom eBook series is an intimate and honest look at how Kara Douglass Thom, co-author of Hot (Sweaty) Mamas: Five Secrets to Life as a Fit Mom and creator of the blog Mama Sweat, balanced (if at times only tenuously) her life as a fit mom, through pregnancy, the intensity of parenting toddlers, and the curiosity of growing kids. These books aren’t filled with “get-your-body-back-after-baby” messages and won’t guilt you into exercise in order to look like society’s ideal of the postpartum mom. The Life as a Fit Mom eBook series is for moms and moms-to-be who are trying to include fitness as part of an active, healthy life and want to raise active, healthy kids too.
Here’s what readers have said about Kara Douglass Thom’s writing while she blogged about finding fitness in the chaos of motherhood on Mama Sweat.
Thanks for all the motivation, humor, distraction and yes, even real information. I always enjoy and appreciate your candor on topics that hit home with all of us moms! —Vanessa
Your blog is excellent and has become my lifeline. Am I really not alone? Other moms are struggling to incorporate exercise into their lives? I had to skip my usual Monday morning class, but you’ve given me some ideas! Thanks! —Siara
With a 20-month-old and 9-month pregnant belly, I’m on the roller coaster that is having young children. It’s nice to know it gets “easier” but it’s also nice to see a realistic perspective. So refreshing! —Jane
