8 Ways To Get Kids Eating Healthier
It is never too early (or late) to start teaching your child how to make smart food choices. More and more studies are showing that early childhood eating habits can affect health status well into adulthood so here are 8 ways to encourage healthy eating habits in your kids:
1. Lead by example: Taking the “do as I say not as I do” approach to mealtimes simply won’t work. Your children looking to you for role modeling so when they see you eating healthy, they are more likely to eat healthy themselves even if you’re not around.
2. Take kids shopping: Not only does the grocery store make a great classroom, allowing your child to pick out a new fruit or vegetable makes them much more inclined to try it.
