Many parents would agree that it’s quite a feat making sure their children maintain a healthy diet. Thankfully, we have gathered some pointers to help make the task easier.
- Bring your children along on trips to the farmers market or grocery store to pick out a few healthier items.
- Encourage your youngsters to help with cooking to get them excited about what they are eating.
- Let your kids choose food, fruit, vegetables and snacks they like at the grocery store—just try to stay away from the chips and candy aisles.
- Our kids base their actions on what they see us as parents doing. If we snack on carrot sticks, rather than chocolate chip cookies, they are likely to follow our example—but make sure you start ‘em young!
