Attack of the Protein People!!

Hey Pooka family, this actually tickled me! Our office manager brings her daughter to work with her sometimes in the summer. So we’re all pretty chummy, having a good time laughing at Pooka. The other day her daughter came into Pooka not so happy, so I asked what was wrong. Apparently she had to go to a birthday party for a cousin of hers but she didn’t want to go because they were “Protein People”, I was shocked!! "What are protein people?", I asked. So she says, “You know they eat raisins and salads and stuff, nothing you Miss Dawn!” Wow, I was shocked to find out that I am one of the “Protein People!” I felt like a scary zombie that chased kids around and threw boxes of raisins at them, LOL! Although it was funny, I realized we have to make sure our children know that we want to be “protein people”. Our children need a well balanced diet to get them through school and all of the wonderful endeavors ahead of them! So pooka people get your kids on the road to becoming Protein People!!

  1. I didn't know we had a name! My daughters are being raised Protein People and they love it! I think if you mix things up and make them fun, children will eat just about anything once they get out of the "no green food, no yellow food" stage. My daughters eat fruit salad for dessert because they want to, not because they don't have any other choice. Life is balance, and that includes the food we eat.
