Healthy Eating For Children
Executive Summary about Healthy Meal for children By Rhonda Tournay

Getting children to eat can be a battle all on its own. Then add eating healthy and most parents throw their hands up in the air declaring it to be next to impossible.

Here you will learn tips for helping your children to eat and to eat healthy.

Two requirements For Healthy Eating

The number one requirement for your children to eat healthy is to ensure that there are healthy foods in the house. That means fridge, freezer and cupboards are stocked with healthy food choices. I won't go so far as to say remove all of the junk food, but then again if you really want your children eating healthy removing the junk food means removing the option of eating unhealthy at least at home!

The second requirement for your children to eat healthy is for you to set the example. If you continue to try this style of parenting don't be surprised when your children follow your example.

7 Tips For Healthy Eating

Tip 1

Involve your children in meal planning. Giving your children choice often eliminates mealtime struggles. This does not mean that your children determine what the household will eat for every meal. This sends a very strong message to children. I highly recommend that your child be allowed to choose one dinner per week for the family.

Tip 2

Involve your children in meal preparation. Children are much more likely to eat something that they have prepared.

Tip 3

Use child friendly recipes. There are many websites that dedicate a recipe section to child friendly recipes. Simply do a web search on child or kid friendly healthy recipes and your choices are endless. Chatelaine's website you can actually search for healthy kid friendly recipes by entering the information into their drop box.

Tip 4

On your dinning room or kitchen table keep a basket with ready to eat fruit. Oranges, Banana's and washed apples.

Tip 5

Better yet let your children make the dip. For a quick dip try using your favourite salad dressings ranch or cucumber salad dressing are my families favourite for dipping veggies. Many children who do not like cooked veggies love them raw!

Tip 6

In your fridge keep a ready to eat fruit tray. Purchase a container of cool whip lite and let it defrost. My children love their dip made with the strawberry, orange banana crystal lite. Mix and serve.

Tip 7

Whenever I made pasta for dinner or used a pasta sauce for topping veal, chicken etc. I added veggies. Always consult a doctor before having your children take a multi-vitamin or cooking with vitamin and mineral supplements.
