Kids Eating Healthy

Fast food is a big part of modern life these days,

making it very hard to teach a child how he or she

should eat healthy. The cheapest and easiest foods

are those that are normally the least healthy. If

you give your child the choice between healthy food

and junk food, you normally won't like the results.

Even though it isn't possible to get a child to like

all healthy foods, there are some ways to get your

child to try and hopefully like at least a few of

them. You can be as creative as you like, as getting

kids to eat healthy foods can be a little harder than

you may think.

- Sneak the healthy food in. Even though it would

be great if your kid understood the importance of

fruits and vegetables, this isn't always possible.

If you can't get them to eat good food willingly,

there are ways to sneak them in, such as making

muffins out of bananas or apples, or pizza with

spinach on it.

- Call fruits and vegetables by funny names. You

can refer to broccoli as "trees", making them

more fun to eat. There are many different names

you can call fruits and vegetables, even making up

your own if you prefer. Most kids prefer to eat

foods that sound fun.

- Make the foods taste better. Ranch dressing is

great for broccoli, while peanut butter is a great

topping for celery. There are several combinations

for vegetables that can make them taste much

better. You can let your child pick a topping

for a vegetable, even if it's something you wouldn't

normally like yourself.

- Dress the vegetables up. Just as much as calling

them names help kids eat healthy foods, making them

look funny also helps. You can do this by making

funny designs on the plate, or setting them up to

look like people. Although some parents don't like

their kids playing with their food, sometimes it

helps to get them to eat healthier.

There are several ways to make your kids eat

healthier, but to make them enjoy it also has to

be fun as well. This isn't always an easy task,

because kids normally don't like foods that are

good for them. It can however, be done with a bit

of creativity. Hopefully, doing this will help

your child develop a love of healthy foods for the

rest of their lives.

being creative is the way to ensure kids enjoy healthy foods
