They are excellent portions and choices, just remember exercise is a massive part too, and remember to drink two to three liters of water, it accelerates weight loss, keeps you hydrated and flushes out toxins

Diets don't work in long run-- people gain it back. This does work. It is mostly NOT your fault, if you need to lose weight. The way you have been taught to eat is responsible for making obesity the number one health problem in the world (according to Atlantic Monthly magazine) replacing hunger and infectious disease. You need to re-learn how to eat so you can become thin.
Find out about fastest way to lose weight, gradual ways to lose weight, most effective exercise and anti-water. Lose bodyfat and retained water which also makes you a lot fatter (bloated). Plus click on "Pure Water" to make sure the water you drink doesn't hurt you. Most important-- make sure to read the last "fat loss tip", first before anything else, to see the number one food that causes Americans to be fat.
Your diet is seemingly well balanced. The honey will improve your immunity and the eggs and granola bars will give you protein and fiber. The only problem here is that you are consuming large amounts of raw nutrients (protein, fiber, omega-3, etc.).
This diet is excellent for keeping up a day that requires energy and it also helps maintain health. With your body size, the proportions are not too far off. However, this diet is not that great for metabolic activity. The key factor in improving your metabolism is getting oxygen into your body and having the carbohydrates to metabolize. Add one of the following to your diet for caloric value; an extra egg, one red meat every other day or at least once a week, nuts/berries, chicken (in any form), or bread with honey/jam/peanut butter. The milk is fine, but you need to add 1-2 glasses of water before bedtime. If your urine is clear at least once a day, then you are consuming enough water so use this as a measure to how much water you need (if you don't already include water in the diet).
You can also stand to replace coffee with tea if you can, and add about 1.5tsp or 1tbsp of sugar because this is one of the most basic necessities of metabolic activity (most people just overdo it). Next, maybe once a week or once every other week, have a portion of red meat. The best thing to consume is a well cooked steak. I simply say this because it assures you are maintaining a supply of needed nutrients (so feel free to skip it if you must). At the end of dinner, eat one stick of celery (the reason for this might become clear at the end of the day).
Finally, assure that you couple this with a light exercise that increases heart rate for 30 minutes (this is only if you want the ideal workout, 10 minutes will do if you alternate jogging and sprints).
If at all you feel full from the added foods, remove the saltines and/or start adding the extras to your breakfast (which is absolutely the most important meal of the day).
Remember, your metabolism will not increase if there is nothing to metabolize or to stimulate it.

Those are definetly small...I would say too small. I haven't done the math but it looks like you won't be getting enough calories to support energy. In addition, if you starve your body of calories you will actually begin to store more of the fat you are consuming. You might lose weight but it is actually not as healthy than if you ate more calories(the right blend ratio - protein/carbs/fat) and exercised. You have the right idea...work it into a good program and you are sure to be on your way. Not sure if you do not eat meat...but consider it - you will definetly see the benefits of a proper diet.

seems good to me.
maybe you should add some high fiber things like, celery, spinich, cucumber, carrots and stuff..
I think the best way to increase metabolic activity is to work out..
you burn about 50 calories a day for a pound of muscle.(not counting when you run and exercise) So.. if you increase your muscle mass it will definatly aid you. Dont be afraid to work out.. you have to realize that it is very hard to gain muscle.. it takes years and years with suppliments to become like a bodybuilder. so dont worry about it and work out
EDIT: whatt? if you are 80 pounds there is no need for dieting. oh yea i also wanted to mention.. you need a surplus of calories to gain muscles and a deficit to lose fat.. BUT yYOUUUU shouldnt be dieting haha

Well I only have one child, 8, but she loves to go bowling. We signed her up for a saturday morning kids bumper bowling league and she loves it. It keeps her active for almost 2 hours every saturday and it doesnt start until 11am so we dont have to get up early or rush out of the house. It's a great activity for kids of any age. I have seen many families there that have 2 or more kids and they all play on the same team and have a ball and its a great way for them to interact with kids their own age outside of school. Its nice for the parent too because you can just sit back and relax while you watch them play. I would suggest talking to your kids and seeing if this is something that would interest them. Then contact your local bowling alley and see what kind of program they have for kids.
