Title: How Can Parents Teach Their Children about Healthy Food?


1
How Can Parents Teach Their Children about
Healthy Food?
  • Taylor Green 26th August 2016

Be the Source of Inspiration
  • If youre regularly lying on a sofa with a large
    hamburger in your hand, you cant convincingly
    teach your children healthy eating habits.
    Children learn by observing your activities, so
    you can influence how they feel about eating for
    better or worse. In eating, as in all things, you
    need to be their role model.
  • If your kids see you eating veggies and doing
    regular workouts, they will become self-motivated
    to do the same. You can also explain to them the
    benefits of eating a balanced diet and getting
    proper exercise. In these ways, you convey
    successfully that good health is important.

3
Make it a Fun
  • You dont need to give long lectures on the
    importance of nutrients in food. Instead,
    accomplish the same thing in a fun way so that
    your child grasps it easily. Play various games
    with them for example, offer a carrot or a bite
    of broccoli as the reward in a treasure hunt.
  • The ever growing digital world has made the job
    easier for you! There are many mobile phone games
    that encourage children to enjoy healthy food.

4
Involve Them
  • The next time you go to the grocery store, take
    your kids with you. Introduce them to various
    fruits and vegetables and explain why they are
    important. This will evoke their curiosity, and
    they may ask you to prepare the foods theyve
    learned about for a meal. Let the children choose
    which vegetable they want to have for dinner.
    Taking part in the purchasing decision inspires a
    sense of pride, increasing their interest in
    trying healthy food.
  • You can even ask for their company while cooking
    the food! Kids are more likely to eat meals that
    they have helped prepare.

5
Buy a Variety of Healthy Food
  • Develop the habit of shopping together for
    healthy food because your children will more
    likely eat what they help you buy. Then make
    those items accessible to the kids by putting
    them in the refrigerator to replace sugary drinks
    and snacks. When kids have healthy food around to
    satisfy their hunger, they wont crave those
    large slices of pizza or handfuls of chips.

6
Try Some New Recipes
  • You can make delicious recipes of the veggies and
    fruit customarily avoided by your kids. It is an
    effective way to encourage them to eat nutritious
    food. For example, if your children dislike
    oatmeal, you can make it interesting to them by
    baking it with a topping of nuts and raisins.
    Serve veggies and fruit to them in salads with
    eye-appealing garnishes.
  • Explore your creativity by making funny faces
    with ketchup. You can also replace their greasy
    chips and candy bars with almonds, walnuts and
    other nut-oreinted snacks.
