For most children, eating healthy food is a struggle. This may also be the case for your children if you do not make an effort to prepare and present nutritious food to children well. Pediatricians often say that when it comes to providing food that meets the nutritional needs of children, parents must consider that appearance and taste must always be combined with the nutritional factors of the food served. It is important to present food creatively and in a fun way for children to like it.
In some places, mothers who wake up early in the morning and prepare a detailed bento (lunch box) for their kindergarten have shown that this view is true; They know that spending time and effort preparing food and making it look appealing to their little angels is the best way to get their picky eaters to eat vegetables. Making an effort to cut the vegetables into sweet forms will easily attract the attention of their children and give them the idea that it will taste good. And if they don’t find it uncomfortable, they will definitely try it again.
In addition, one way to present nutritious food to children is to learn how to create a variety of dishes. For example, if you did not manage to get them to eat your previous kale salad, try a different kind of dish – try baking kale and turning them into chips, or just adding them in your child’s favorite smoothie. An effective way to prepare food preparation strategy that can help you get your child to eat more nutritious food is to use healthy ingredients to prepare a snack. There are many fun ideas for preparing healthy snacks. Let your child snack on fresh fruits such as watermelons by cutting them into cubes or in triangular form and adding carbonated water as well as ice cream for a clean and refreshing taste.
Finally, you can add fruits or vegetables to your child’s favorite dish. Be sure to cut the vegetables into unrecognizable sizes so that the children do not notice them easily. You can cut them nicely or cube them so that they are not only difficult to separate from the food, they are also easier to eat.
The above strategies are well proven and have been effective for the majority of parents to ensure that they meet their nutritional needs through the food they prepare.
