You can start your children on a healthy eating habit by doing these simple steps.
Involve the young ones with choosing the ingredients
Ask for your kids’ help in shopping for fruits, vegetables and other healthy food items. This way, they will feel involved in the food preparation.
Grow your own fruits and veggies
Whenever possible, you can plant a garden and grow your own vegetables & fruits. Your children can help you tend to the garden, and they will also have a sense of accomplishment when it is time to harvest!
Cook your meals together
Encourage children to watch or join you as you prepare the food. It can be an eye-opening experience for them to witness how you turn the raw food items into delicious meals.
Ask for help in food preparation
Are you planning on preparing a healthy wrap? You can ask your child to help you do this. The young ones can also help place fruit slices on a plate, or arrange vegetable sticks on a serving platter.
Train your child to snack healthily
Avoid giving your child chips and candies for snacks. You can instead get them used to vegetable sticks, and fruits as healthy snack alternatives.
Lead by example
Show your kids that healthy food items are enjoyable to feast on.
