Forget cereal—dietitians say pizza is a healthier breakfast option

  Forget cereal—dietitians say pizza is a healthier breakfast option Yep, a slice of that cheesy goodness in the morning is probably better for you and your kids than pouring that bowl of sugary cereal.Most cereal commercials mention that a bowl of cereal is part of a complete breakfast, and on the screen, you’ll see a bowl of cereal surrounded by whole wheat toast, fruit, a glass of orange juice and a glass of milk (although, who would want to drink OJ and milk in the same meal? And why would any drink a glass of milk when there’s already milk in your cereal? Confusing, but let’s move on).

But with so many extreme diets and clean eating habits becoming more and more popular, I don' t think you should force your children to duplicate those meal plans. Kids shouldn' t have to go to a birthday party and reject a piece of cake because their parents said avocado pudding is better.

Nutrition and diets are met with both intense acceptance and harsh rejection in today's society. Strong is the new sexy, but people are also embracing their curves (and their right to live life and not deprive themselves) more than ever. And when it comes to family, I do believe that every parent knows what's best for their own child. Given that one out of three American children is overweight or obese, it makes perfect sense that you adjust your child's diet accordingly to encourage healthier lifestyles (diet changes can also help with behavioral issues). But with so many extreme diets and clean eating habits becoming more and more popular, I don't think you should force your children to duplicate those meal plans.

10 Things Your Waiter Won't Tell You, But That You Really Should Know

  10 Things Your Waiter Won't Tell You, But That You Really Should Know There’s a reason why a lot of struggling actors and actresses take jobs as servers at restaurants: Being a waiter or waitress is very much a performance, one where they need to smile and nod and make it appear as if they’re having a good time and that the restaurant is doing everything in its power to accommodate you. But in reality, there are a whole lot of things that servers secretly wish they could tell you without running the risk of getting fired. Here are 10 things that your waiter really wishes you knew.

A recent Australian study found that 82 percent of parents give their children the same meals as themselves, even when on a diet (guilty!). Many celebrities are also well-known for passing down their extremely strict diet restrictions to their kids. In Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook, It's All Good, Gwyneth wrote, "Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread, or processed grains like white rice, we're left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs." Along with restricting carbs, the actress and Goop founder also enforces a gluten-free diet on her family, and additionally eliminates processed foods, dairy, eggs, sugar, soy, and meat. Madonna's kids also have to follow a strict macrobiotic diet that excludes meats, dairy, eggs, and wheat, and Kourtney Kardashian frequently talks about her obsession with organic foods and makes her children follow a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. With that many restrictions, I personally don't know what's left to eat that makes life worth living!

7 Essential Tips for Vacationing With Other Families

  7 Essential Tips for Vacationing With Other Families 7 Essential Tips for Vacationing With Other Families can be stressful, particularly if you have different parenting styles or financial constraints. Being great friends doesn't always mean you're vacation-compatible — especially when kids are involved. But if everyone is willing to communicate their needs and compromise, it can be a lot of fun. Here's how to make the most of your double (or triple, or quadruple?!) family vacation.1. Communicate parenting stylesEveryone parents differently. To vacation together successfully, it’s important to discuss each family's rules and style before you leave.

Experts warn that children's development is dependent on getting a variety of nutrients, and strict eating restrictions can short change them from getting important vitamins and minerals like protein, calcium, niacin, and iron. Another study found that gluten-free products had less nutritional value and lower quality than gluten-full foods. So unless your child is really, truly allergic to gluten, it's best not to restrict them. It's also recommended that children get up to half of their calories from carbohydrates since it is the main source of energy (and kids have a lot of energy). That doesn't mean you can fill your child up with sugary snacks though. Their main source of carbohydrates should come from complex carbs found in meats, dairy, fruits, and whole grains.

I'm not saying I'm perfect when it comes to managing my children's daily nutrition. I enforce healthy habits and try to teach them that certain foods fuel the body in the best way, but I don't take it to an extreme. I also think the more children are restricted from something, the more likely they are to want it. And it turns out, there's actual scientific research that backs this idea. In a 2013 study about child obesity, findings showed that the more likely a child was to be exposed to parental controls of food (such as strict restrictions), the more likely that child was prone to eating (and overeating!), even when not hungry.

Editor’s Letter: You Can't Force the Perfect Vacation .
Condé Nast Traveler editor in chief Pilar Guzmán on how to set yourself up for a successful trip.A newly separated friend recently approached me about planning a trip to Italy in August with her kids. “I want to take the boys to Tuscany for two weeks,” she said. When I asked what she envisioned her two teenagers doing in Tuscany in August, she paused and told me she didn’t really know. Don’t get me wrong. Tuscany is beautiful at any time of year, and the fantasy of long, boozy alfresco lunches on a wisteria-draped patio overlooking gently rolling hills ticks every European-countryside box. Plus, she was prepared to rent a nice house with a pool and a cook.
