Teaching Kids to Eat Healthy Food

1. That is tempting

Cooking dishes attractive, even tempting! Use a variety of colors, shapes and simple designs to draw attention to your children. Here are some ideas: Make a rainbow on the plate, with sliced red pepper, carrots, corn, celery, blueberries and raspberries. Add some steamed cauliflower or a lot of rice at the ends like clouds. Your children will choose automatically by the artwork, regardless of the ingredients.

2. Be tenacious

Do not give up! Keep offering fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains every day. Children may complain, may refuse to eat, but you have to be stronger. Avoid the temptation to give up and order a pizza. If you keep offering fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains, children eventually accede to try. Patience above all.

3. It has to be tasty

Once children make the first move and eat healthy foods, it is better to be rich! Make sure they are appealing to children. At first, they have to be very strong flavors, such as turnips, Brussels sprouts and onions. Take small steps, and give your kids food simple but tasty.

4. Timely decisions

No need to go to work in the kitchen for hours to do this job. Chances are you’re a busy parent, and every minute counts. Wash and cut some fruits and vegetables, perhaps some steamed vegetables, and prepare some brown rice, whole wheat pasta. It is useful to a lot of whole grain early, so you wont have to cook every night. Also, very important is not to give them heavy snacks just before dinner. Make sure your children come to the table hungry.

5. Eating together

Take your time, and dinner with your children. Not only is it a great way to get some family time, but also are modeling good eating habits. Something that can really help is to eat the same things you have prepared for them. You can add a little more adult flavor, like garlic or red pepper. It is clear that when children grow, end up eating the same way their parents ate.
