Happy Healthy Kids!
Want your kiddos to eat healthy and ENJOY it?! Make it fun! Explain to them WHY we eat this way. I remember as a kid I hated being told "because I said so"😠 especially about food! I was a smart little cookie & always questioned what I was told. I think this is a great thing for kids to learn- question everything! The last thing I wish is for my child to be complacent in this kind of society.✌🏽
Now, tbh my kiddos don't eat every single dinner I put on the table... now that would be a dream... but I also don't force them to. I truly believe children know what is best for their bodies- they are VERY intuitive if you sit back and observe. Asking them to help make meals or at least some kind of input from them about the meal may help assure they will want to eat it later! [who else remembers sitting at the dinner table until 10pm bc you refused to eat your dinner🙋🏽🤦🏽♀️] I don't want food to be a struggle in our household. You win some, ya lose some.
Whatever they do eat is 100% organic, raw fruits & veggies, some nuts & seeds so they are definitely getting nutrient dense meals in. Friends always ask "how do your kids not beg for junk food?!" Well, If your kids never eat junk food, they won't know to ask for it!!🤣🙈 rice cakes are a big deal around here!🙌🏽 The chemicals/additives/preservatives literally make consumers addicted to it, no wonder they always crave it!🤷🏽♀️
And for the times they are just not having it... I tell them 'try a few bites, if ya still don't like it, there's always FRUIT!'💕🍉🍍🍓🍇🍒
