How to Get Kids Eating Healthy (Secrets All Parents Should Know!)
Life on the Go
- When you leave home, take appealing and nutritious snacks along for your baby or toddler.
- Be prepared. Keep plastic forks, knives, and spoons, stored in plastic sandwich bags, in your glove compartment, backpack, or purse. Or pack baggies of nonperishable finger foods in your glove compartment for the littlest snackers in your family.
- Pack frozen fruits and vegetables in small containers to take along in lunches. They will defrost in time to eat and keep the rest of the lunch fridge-fresh.
- The words healthy and fast can be synonymous. When eating on the quick, choose restaurants where you can get foods such as a bean burrito, an Asian rice bowl, salads, or pasta.
Quick, Easy, and Healthy Food Tips
- Press frozen bananas through a juicer—they taste just like banana ice cream.
- Cut up leftover veggies; puree, spread on wide lasagna-style noodles; roll, bake, and slice.
- Spread low-fat cream cheese on whole-wheat tortillas, thinly slice fruit (pear is a favorite) and place on top, roll, and slice for a delicious, nutritious snack.
- Dilute fruit juices with water.
- Keep washed and cut vegetables and fruit ready in your refrigerator for fast and nutritious snacks.
