Well, it's a new year. Firing up the Healthy Families BC website and blog in 2011 has been a great success. We are very excited at how the Healthy Families BC online community has grown and has been engaged in communicating how we can all make positive choices to eat well and be active.

Our team of Dietitians has a lot of ideas simmering in the HFBC think-tank, but because of the great participation and strong community voice we have heard on the site, we ask what you would like to see for food and nutrition blog topics.

Tell us what kind of blog entries have really worked for you in 2011 and what you would like to see more of in 2012.

Thanks for being part of the Healthy Families BC community, and have a great 2012!

Happy new year! I might have just missed these if they were already blogged about, so apologies if that's the case. Growing up hating 99% of all veggies (actually only really started eating them in the last 5-6 years), it'd be great to read some tips on how to "trick" kids into eating and liking greens (and reds and yellows and...). And failing the trickery, which veggies would give the most bang for the buck. Organic fooding vs. non -- justifying the cost? The right way to increase fibre intake, as well as the different kinds of fibre out there. Nutrient differences between frozen, canned, "fresh," and so on; recommendations? More food myths busted. I love the holistic approach and overall tone that you folks take: "we know you don't eat perfectly, but here are some tips to help mitigate the 'damage.'" Keep it up and thanks!

Not sure if you have talked about calories and mainting a healthy weight. There is so much conflicting news out there, its hard to keep track of it all. And fats... what should I be looking for with that, especially when I am looking at a nutrition label.

Hi, have a 13 year old in my house and I was wondering if you can write some blogs that speak to teens. The stuff I read these days is geared more towards adults and I know that teens have different requirements when it comes to eating and physical activity. I just think it's important to educate parents better on this as many think that they are like adults.

I would like to hear about meals for two, lunches to go, and more about healthy snacks, especially healthy baked goods. I still want to have muffins, but if they could be made without the bad stuff in them it would be great.
