Dealing with picky eaters is a common struggle for many parents. We all want our kids to be good eaters but sometimes we don’t know the right tricks. The prevalence of childhood obesity in the United States increases each day, so it is important to introduce your children to healthy foods that will benefit their growth and development. The earlier you start introducing healthy foods to kids, the better. Tip #1: introduce foods slowly. You can do this by sneaking in a few leaves of spinach into their smoothies or some vegetables in their pasta. Once they get used to the idea of actually liking something healthy, they will voluntarily eat it. Tip #2: is to always have healthy options available. If you have mostly junk food in your house, how do you expect your kids to go for the one fruit option that you have? The more they see healthy foods, the more comfortable they will become with them. They will start to like and choose them on their own! Tip #3: make it fun and get them involved. You can do this by trying new foods often, having them help you cook, or making some sort of game out of it. Tip #4: My final and most important tip is to be a role model for your child. If your kids see you eating healthy, they will want to do the same!
