The Greens super foods. Just to name a few Some leafy vegetables such as kale, are rich in vitamin C, which helps to keep your teeth and bones strong.
You want your kids to eat more greens. But feeding picky eaters, I do not even know where to start. I’ve already tried, and it did not go well. The child does not even want to try a bite. So how do you get your kids to eat more greens?
First, children are more sensitive to taste palettes and textures. This leads them to develop a taste for something. Nutrition experts suggest that mothers about the importance of exposing young children in many different flavors. They say conditions for them to accept a variety of healthy foods. But the first taste experiences can occur before we are able to eat solid foods. Babies are exposed to through breast milk flavors that reflect the flavors of foods, spices and beverages mother’s diet. So, if you are pregnant now, try to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables.
Patience is the key here. Sometimes you have to try several times before they start to like it. Do you want to introduce the greens they already know. Do not give up after the first attempt.
Be a good example
Be an example to your children so they can see that eating the greens and you are curious to try them. Remember that the best way to teach someone to eat healthy foods to eat them yourself.
For example, my husband did not like asparagus, but after she got married, it seems quite often to our table. At first he was not very excited, but then I developed a real taste for it now and he is very fond of asparagus. It takes a little while.
Cook with your children
Let me help you in the kitchen. Children are more willing to try something new, after they have prepared themselves. Plus, they learn how to cook from an early age, and appreciate the work of the mother in the kitchen. He knew how to cook can help them eat healthier when they grow up.
Hide Green smoothies and Popsicles
If the child does not want to try something green to hide a smoothie or ice cream. If a blueberry smoothie spinach with some hope that it will not be able to tell the color, because it will be the color of blueberries. However, if you do not want to hide the fact that the addition of greens for a long time, because I want to have children are more open and eager to eat it themselves. I’ll let you decide how transparent the parent you want to be a parent.
Fresh Farms Tours
I want the little ones to go shopping in the local economy. It is important for them to see where our food comes from and that it takes a lot of hard work to grow it. It does not grow on trees in plastic bags. Let me pick some blueberries or strawberries or fresh kale choose a nice dinner with a salad.
As a child, I was exposed to a wide variety of healthy foods. When he moved to the United States, there has been a lot of greens that I’ve never tried before, such as: collard greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, spinach, etc. Although it has never been before, I am very adventurous to try.
Tell your children how much appreciate your help in the kitchen, and unique. Children need to understand that what they are doing to make a difference and adults realize that. Tell them how proud of them for making healthy choices.
