Helping kids eat healthy: Don't make a fuss
Tips for helping kids eat healthy
The trick to getting kids to eat healthily is to feed them, right from weaning, on what you eat, no special "kiddie" dinners.
Without making a fuss, let them try things they probably won't like at all.
Let them eat it raw if necessary. My granddaughter loves to eat straight from the garden - peas, strawberries, beans -all raw. I let her eat her fill.
Sometimes it's not the taste that's a problem for children. My granddaughter wouldn't eat cherries or other stone fruit until I figured out she didn't like the pips. I showed her how to remove them or spit the little ones and now she's happy eating them.
