Tips for kids’ healthy eating

Serving children healthy food is often VERY hard work! I don’t know about you but I feel I am constantly surrounded my sweets and crisps, which is not good for my sweet tooth!

To get your children eating healthily and to make your lives a little easier, I have out some tips together.  Yum! 

* LET children join in the planning of meals. Agree on a menu for the week and stick with it.

* Serve one meal for all the family. This will help to stop picky eating, although you need to be prepared for rebellion for a while.

* Make a sticker chart so kids can enjoy reaching healthy-eating goals, like eating five servings of fruit and veg for the day.

* If children turn their noses up at new foods, keep trying. It can take over ten attempts for some to accept a new vegetable.

* Canned fruits still count towards your five a day. Peaches, mangoes and tangerines in fruit juice are great added to jellies, yogurts and smoothies.

* Some children find the taste of broccoli, sprouts, cauliflower and watercress too bitter. Try others like squash, peas or sweet potato instead.
