SIMPLE FOOD SUGGESTION


This post contains affiliate links. Please read my disclaimer.    

It may seem an impossible task to help your kids eat healthier,but you have to try.Here are few simple   suggestions to help you get back on the track where the nutrition of your kids is concerned.

  1.   Eat healthier yourself. Your child is an imitator; what you do, he or she will want to do. It doesn't help to put vegetable in your child's plate while you're eating cookies. He or she will see it as injustice. You serve your child  by example you set. Serve your child well by eating well your self. Let our desire to improve the health of our children motivate us to make changes for ourself.
  2. Eat whole foods. Avoid as many processed foods as you can. Processed, packaged foods often strips out nutrients and put an extra fats, sugars, and salts. God made our bodies to respond to good food. It may take a while for the palate to change , but it can be done. Have patience and don't give up on the nutrition of your family!
  3. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. These are as about as "whole" as you can get. Just wash preferably with salt , cut them into bite-sized pieces, and you're good to go.
  4. Eat variety. Kids tend to have one thing they like and want to eat it all time . Help your child learn variety by providing different types of flavors and textures in food. Kitchen is a place where we explore, enjoy, and play with food. Our children should learn that it isn't just the taste  that's important with food but the preparation as well.
  5. Eat whole grains. Look for pastas, flour, and bread made of whole grain. Their nutritional value  is higher and with more dietary fiber.
  6. Avoid an abundance of fried foods. Frying adds fat to food. Instead,eat food raw,baked,grilled,or roasted.
  7. Limit processed sweet. There's nothing wrong with a cookie after dinner, but one shouldn't turn into four or five.Instead make it a cookie and a serving yogurt or piece of fruit.
  8. Use the 30-30-40 rule. Watch food labels and strive for 40% of your child's calories to be from complex carbohydrates, 30% from protein and 30% from fats.
  9. Chose your fats. Look for unsaturated fats, high in omega 3 and 6. These fats are found in nut, fish, and olive oil. Fats are important nutrient for the body. They aid lubrication and brain function. Don't fall into the trap of thinking all fat is bad. It's not, and your child needs the right kind of fats to grow appropriately.
  10. Give your child a good multi-vitamin, multi-mineral each day. Even with healthy eating, it's difficult to get all the trace minerals and vitamins needed to operate optimally. Each vitamin, each mineral, each amino acid, acts as a piece of the nutritional puzzle. For the puzzle to be complete, all the pieces need to be there. Today, there are many good products available, even for children. Look for a multi-formula designed for the age of your child. Choose a product that has high bioavailability-a formula that your child digestive system can actually break down and use, with organically based ingredients.

  5. Love this. How can we expect our kids to eat healthy if we don't eat healthy ourselves. They learn from our habits.

  6. "Give your child a good multi-vitamin, multi-mineral each day" Good on you for including that. It's an overlooked necessity. Flinstone's vitamin's were a staple of my childhood.

  12. I don't have a kid yet but I can relate - my mom gets worried whenever we don't eat our veggies. What she did was, she'd eat one first (or at least show us that she's eating the broccoli) then we'd follow. She didn't deprived us of processed food but we had ground rules. I appreciate it a lot because fast-forward to X years, I RARELY eat processed food. Thank you for this post!

  13. Very helpful read! My boy is soo fussy but started trying more foods because he sees us eat it. Being persistent helps too, as it's always tempting to not put the veg on his plate because you "know he won't eat it" One day they might! Great post!
