Getting your kids to eat healthy everyday can be a challenge. It takes a lot of planning, motivation and many sparks of creativity.
One of the best gifts you could ever give your kids is teaching them about food and Di Nutrition starting from a young age is a great way of instilling healthy habits they will stick to into adulthood, then pass down to their children and so on.
I believe that Kids can catch the bug of healthy eating habits and a real love for food. Teaching your kids to love healthy food doesn’t just stop when they become teenagers either.
Di Nutrition education is a constant process where everyone of any age is always evolving and becoming healthier.
Are you ready to take your kids health to the next level?.. Here’s how.
Eat Breakfast Everyday
There is a reason why they say that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it sets you up for the rest of your day.. as there’s a clear difference between kids who eat their Breakfast and those who do not.
Increased energy, concentration levels, positive mood, Healthier BMI AKA Body Mass Index and belly not rumbling etc. To not have any Breakfast at all for yourself is bad enough but to leave your kids without any is even worse.
Make sure that in the morning your kids have their Breakfast ready for them on time every day. I believe that if you’re leading by example and eating a healthy breakfast too your children will follow suit.

Place Healthy Snacks Strategically
It’s great to always have healthy snacks on hand, be sure to put them where the kids can visually see them. Just like adults, they eat with their eyes.. make sure the snack is appealing when they see it.
For example leaving Bananas in the fruit bowl on the kitchen table is a smart idea because your kids will go past there many times during the day.
Let Them Know Where Food Comes From
If you’re not too careful they will swear blind it comes from anyone of the numerous fast junk joints circling around your local area.
It’s a sad state of affairs where many children have not had the opportunity to get any sort of awareness of where real food actually comes from. I’m talking about the farm to table process, even down to what Fruit and Vegetable looks like on the farm.
I would suggest you take your kids to your nearest food farm and let them experience the different Fruit and Vegetables and how to select each. For example, now many food farms allow apple picking in Autumn, along with selecting fresh eggs straight from the hen itself.
There’s also Vegetable pickings you can do on the farms beyond just Autumn and Apples, such as Butternut squash, Tomatoes, Green beans and Aubergines.
If you don’t have any food farms close by then not to worry, you can still take them to the supermarket and teach them about the different Vegetables and Fruits and how to select each.
With this experience/methods your kids will start to develop a true appreciation for food, which will lead to a better meal appreciation and a sense of gratitude for fresh and whole ingredients/foods.
Have Kids Participate In the Kitchen
Get your kids into the kitchen helping out and learning about the mechanics of cooking, the younger the better so that when they reach their teens and tweens, they are able to make their own meals without assistance. Once again this is something they can pass down to their kids and so on.
