We’ve all had these cravings to pig out junk food occasionally. We have also all been children before. I know that the clipping tank on me trying to eat healthy was enough to make my stomach do backflips (eww).
So how can we realistically expect our children to eat healthy food and enjoy it? I mean, you would be happier to sneeze with your eyes open (believe me, it’s harder than it sounds).
If you want to clear a room full of kids, shout “WHO WANTS VEGGIES”! While this task is a bit tricky, it is something we need to pay close attention to as we want our children to grow up healthy and prosper.
Furthermore, we know that as you mature and grow up, what you eat affects your mood and general attitude in life. That is why it is really important to add good nutrition to your little ones early in life.
One thing I like to do is get the kids involved in cooking. After putting your own foot in it (so to speak), your kids are much more eager to have some of the meal made. Even the smallest steps like mixing or introducing ingredients make your little one feel involved. This also teaches them in the future to rely on doing something that is familiar to them.
Do not try to convert your child to a vegan lifestyle overnight. Prepare something for a typical meal and make small changes and incorporate something new and healthy. This way you do not spray it all at once. Little by little, you continue to bring healthier substitutes to unhealthy dishes.
Lead by example. As an adult, we have all heard our parents say “Do what I tell you because I told you,” Nothing can make your children do the exact opposite faster. Especially when we talk about eating habits. You can tell your kids to do it right 100 times, but they see that you do it right, there are no words that can overturn the difference that makes. In other words, do not pig and expect the kids to be ecstatic about fruits and vegetables for snacks.
Now, if all else fails, do not do this. Involve premium. Although I would not recommend that this was daily, especially if the price is food, but once a week or every few days they (the) youngsters give goodies for their good eating disorders. It makes it even better if it is a favorite not often served. Nothing beats what lies in it for me, as I always say. I hope you enjoyed this article as much as it has done. Have a fantastic day!
