Real Food. Real People.

 In today’s high paced world, eating healthy can be a struggle for anyone. However, it is important that you make an effort to eat better, not only for yourself, but also for your children. While kids can prove to be extremely picky when it comes to what they will eat, we here at Great Harvest in Spokane have some tips you can follow to encourage your children to make healthy choices.

Set the right example

You might be surprised to discover just how many habits children adopt from watching their parents. If you want your child to eat healthy, you have to set the example. Avoid buying prepared meals from the grocery store and taking home fast food. Instead, cook meals that offer healthy alternatives that are also delicious. Time constraints can play a factor in meal preparation, but remember that things like soups can be frozen and stored for later. Be sure to check out 7 more tips to help you eat healthier.

Reduce the junk

Having a house full of unhealthy snacks won’t help you children make healthy choices. Cut back on the amount of potato chips, cookies and sugary drinks you buy, and instead supply your refrigerator with healthy alternatives. Not having the unhealthy options to choose from will steer your children towards the better options. You don’t have to get rid of all the junk food, just cut back. Remember that you can use the cookies and chips as treats and incentives for doing well.

Let them help

Grocery shopping might be quicker if you go alone, but consider taking your children with you. Allow them to explore different options steering them towards healthy choices. Let them pick out fruit they’re interested in but maybe they’ve never tried before. Ask for their help with cooking meals. Giving them the freedom to choose what they want to cook and allowing them to help prepare meals will get them more interested in tasting the finished product. They’ll gain a sense of pride knowing they helped prepare a meal for their family and will be more keen to eat what is on their plate.
