Healthy eating for kids can be a challenge for us as parents.
Kids normally eat what their parents are eating, and due to unhealthy eating habits of parents, kids will practice unhealthy eating habits as well. Therefore healthy eating for your kids will be a constant headache.
Parents try cooking more often especially kid-approved meals and kids will learn to wean off the junk food.
Unfortunately kids are surrounded by candy, ice cream, and fast food which taste good but are filled with stimulants, and lack nutrients; furthermore when kids get a hold of them they become hyperactive and hooked by the taste of these foods.
Consequently kids will continue to turn away healthy food if solutions are not implemented.
To get children to eat healthy at breakfast, lunch, and dinner; try some of the solutions below.
Everyone knows that kids as well as adults partake in eating what taste good and not what's good for them.
Kids must be educated about healthy foods to eat, and healthy eating for kids is not an easy task especially when their taste buds are used to a particular type of food. Don't worry it can be done.
Below is a healthy eating for kids guideline to follow; they are alternatives to junk food and kid-approved.
Use fruits, choose different colors, kids love to pick from a variety of colors. If they don't want to eat the fruits, make a fruit juice and add some almond milk to it, this will make it taste good.
Use vegetables and make a nice salad. Use an all natural salad dressing... pour it on top the vegetables and stir it with a big spoon, this will allow the salad to touch every corner of the vegetables for a delightful bite.
Give them some all natural ice cream. Usually my wife makes homemade ice cream but when this don't happen we buy ice cream call soy Tofutti and soy delight. The soy delight comes in a verity of flavors but both of them are tasty.
Buy some potato chips, get the whole grain ones, these are healthy snack foods for kids. To add to it, you can use all natural chips and dips. In my experience, kids love to dip and eat.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Use the peanut butter that says all natural. This will have actual peanuts with oil floating at the top. Also use natural guava jelly, this is a good combination for taste and your bread must be whole wheat.
Get some vegetarian hot dogs they taste good. These hot dogs are wonderful for kids and are a good substitute. Use whole-wheat hot dog buns.
Kids also love hamburgers. I know lots of kids that love vegetarian burgers and would not trade them for the world. These burgers are call "morning star veggie burgers." These burgers are very tasty when vegetables like lettuce and tomatoes are between them.
Eating healthy cereals are good food for kids; actually cereals are a favorite for them. When buying cereal for your kids, buy the healthy ones like the whole grain cereal, these will have a brown look to them. The milk you need to use is the vanilla almond milk.
If the cereal don't taste sweet enough, pour some honey (do not use white sugar, use the natural brown sugar if you don't have honey) into the cereal and stir it, this will give it a marvelous taste and your child will feel special
There you have it, wholesome food that are healthy for kids, taste good, natural and that they will enjoy.
