Looking for some tips on how to encourage your kids to eat healthier? Well, check out these top five tips from the experts below.
1. Get them involved in making the meal. Getting kids involved in helping to prepare healthy meals will teach them how to cook. It will also teach them how to eat healthily.
2. Make healthy snacks available. Make healthy snacks available instead of junk food. Kids will have no choice but to eat the healthy snacks when they are hungry. Apples and carrot sticks will eventually become their “go to.”
3. Be a good influence. Kids mimic what their parents do. So, if you are eating healthily, so will they.
5. Be consistent. Make sure that this is a consistent thing and not just a fad. Healthy eating habits take time to develop, but are well worth the journey in the long run.
