Fruit and veggies are a big part of a healthy, balanced diet.
But getting children to eat them isn’t always easy.
Sometimes the hardest part of family dinner is getting the children to eat what you put in front of them.
Pediatricians offer three tips to help your children eat healthier.
Number one: have your kids help you make the meal.
Involving them in the process, whether it’s ingredient gathering or letting them mix ingredients, can help them feel more invested and more likely to eat.
Number two: always add fruit veggies.
It’s common for some children to only want to eat certain foods.
The doctors say always round out the meal with a vegetable or fruit.
And number three: just like adults, kids have unique taste.
Whether is a preference of broccoli over brussels sprouts, cauliflower over cabbage or green beans over green peppers, doctors suggest being flexible.
That doesn’t mean always giving in to your child’s every food request.
But remembering that everyone has different opinions on food, even your children.
