Everyone knows that getting your kids to eat healthy food can be challenging, but here are 4 Ways To Get Your Kids To Eat Healthy Foods.
How to Get Your Kids To Eat Healthy
- Don’t insist your kids join the Clean-Plate-Club. Focus instead on the Try-Everything-On-Your Plate Club to broaden their food horizons while offering multiple healthy choices at mealtimes.
- Busy schedules can make healthy eating especially difficult. Instead of swinging through the drive thru when hunger strikes, plan ahead and put together a quick Bento box with things like hummus and whole grain crackers, small PB&J sandwiches, grapes, and berries to keep choices healthy.
- And speaking of choice at home, teach your kids to make good choices by creating a snack tray in the refrigerator. Use a muffin tin or egg carton to portion out small, healthy snacks that your kids can help themselves to whenever they get hungry. These can be hard-boiled eggs, celery with peanut butter, a handful of nuts.
- Finally, when it comes time to hydrate, and water seems a bit plain, don’t reach for sodas. Try adding your kids’ favorite juice to seltzer water for a sparkling drink with less sugar. Add frozen juice cubes for even more flavor.
We hope this will help you the next time your child wants some type of junk food, try one of these methods instead. Remember, mother and father know best!
