Discovering your niche

If you scan through blogs about blogging advice, one thing is common among all have to find your niche.  That has been my struggle.  What do I love to write about and importantly, what do you love to read?  I have not been blogging lately because I have struggled with that question.  I would love to hear from you.  I have reflected on my previous blog postings and found that I enjoy talking about the silly things kids do but I also enjoy talking about ways to improve our children's health. In fact, I've considered pursuing a career in nutrition.  I was shocked to find that there is so very little information out there on how to increase a child's weight.  Pediatric nutritionalists are usually called in for an obsese child.  What about that child that is super skinny?  Try as they might, they can't put weight on those bones.  How does that impact their self esteem?  I spoke with one adult who struggled with this throughout childhood and was certain it impacted his self esteem.  The other aspect of nutrition that interests me is what should our children be eating?  I'm certain it doesn't include poptarts or cupcakes.  What nutritional benefit is there to adding vegetables to baked goods?  I hope I can give some yummy recipes while I test this out.  Today, try adding a half jar of carrot baby food or puree your own to your pancake mix.  It gives them a cool orange tinge but doesn't change the taste.
Let me hear from you.  What do you enjoy reading about?
