It can be so hard balancing the desire to have your kids eat the best of the best food with their picky eating and our busy schedules. I am a firm believer that diet plays a huge role in the way our kids act, grow and perform in school. It is one sure way we can help our kids grow to their full potential and ensure they get a great, healthy start at life.
I totally get that kids may not be as on-board with a healthy diet as we hope, but there are some foods that are just not even almost good for our kids. Sure, there is no harm in moderation — having the unhealthy foods is fine once in a while, but they should not be a staple in your family’s diet. Last week I shared the super foods our kids should be eating now to provide the best bang for our buck. The other side of that coin is getting our kids to eat foods they enjoy — that are also healthy for them.
Usually with just a little bit more time, a few extra ingredients, and swapping out some things here and there, there are ways we can keep our kids happy and interested in their food, helping to foster a healthy diet and healthy eating habits.
