I am a former classroom teacher that has had experience in the preschool, elementary and highschool settings but mostly taught in middle school in the United States. My favorite teaching years were the three I spent teaching science in a specialized setting for twice-exceptional kids in Middle School Science and Highschool biology. I am now a home educator for my 7-year-old daughter and nanny part time. I have a book I am working on publishing and a children's book.

I gave a little more detail. Would you please check it out and see if you still think I need to add more of the "unhealthy stuff." I seem to have given the impression that my snack examples are all she eats. Wondered if, after the added detail, you still think she needs more fats.

comment When you don't think (grand)children are getting the care they need
I know, However, it wouldn't be anonymous (aren't enough people that know to make it so) - as she is doing, I'm trying to help without ruining the relationship - I think she sometimes takes the kids to a pediatrician, I'm think I'm going to suggest she ask the pediatrician to do the actual reporting. Might feel less threatening to her - especially since she is very likely the person that would be granted custody in the end.

comment My six year old is afraid of the shower. How do I help her transition?
+1 right off the bat for suggesting asking her! and then empowering her to use the settings. She says it is how it "feels" that scares her, so she really doesn't like the sensation.

Thanks @deworde and mmr. We are not vegetarian, I just didn't think to list things we have with regular meals - I was listing the "Snacky stuff" she has free access too at almost any time. I'll check out the NHS guidelines though because we don't eat a lot of protein at dinner (our biggest meal is breakfast). Maybe it will have some good ideas to incorporate with dinner that will help.
