Kids Eating Healthy Starts Now!

 

There’s no way to sugar-coat this without being fake towards you, or giving you a false sense of hope in what a lot of you that have Kids are doing to them.

“What am I doing to them?”

 

Feeding them Junk food that has no place on your plate let alone in their stomachs, teaching them from a young age that eating these type of foods is the way to go is right..

 

Yeah, to the hospital, although that part is left out because we put our heads in the sand.

 

1. You leave this site right now with your head in the sand, maybe curse me out and then carry on as you were… Feeding your Kid/Kids Junk food you know damn well are no good.

2. Come into this with an open mind. One where we decidedIt’ time” to make a difference and give my child the best chance in life and be as healthy as my Kid/Kids can be each and every day.

 

To go through life without added pain (because you know how tough life can get already mentally and physically) so let this be a weight off your shoulders… Something you never have to worry about again.

You see we’ve all heard about Nutrition before. I also know that Nutrition is old hat and that Di Nutrition is the way forward because it’s dependable and gives you confidence to feed your Kid/Kids properly without hesitation (Click Here)

 

So below are some Di Nutritional Tips/Advice to get your Kids eating healthy ASAP… Plus over time they will swear it was their idea, the ones that are a little older.

 

Make A Schedule

You should have set patterns of when you eat on a regular basis as often as possible.

 

Especially when you’re all at home, there should be no divagation because this is where everything starts at home.

Start making a list of healthy foods for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner for the school week, then on weekend’s overtime.

 

If you need any help whatsoever with that then hit me/my team up (Click Here)

Your kids should be eating every three to four hours; this is including snacks and water also.

 

Your Kids eating habits will be much improved, they’ll be less crankiness and they’ll never be stomachs grumbling hungrily again (your Stomach eating your body fat is not cool.).

The schedule will be a lot easier to do if you yourself read this, join in as much as you can with it, so even though this is the Kids schedule you can benefit from this too.

This will also encourage you to stock healthy foods such as Carrots, Almond nuts, Greek Yoghurts & Water 😉😉 when traveling in your car or just walking around your area… which will make you not have to throw away all you efforts by going to a fast-food outlet!

 

 

Introduce New Foods.. Just Do It Slow

Kids are very fearful when it comes to new foods.

 

They taste buds are still getting used to new flavours, and some may be pretty wild for them like Brussels & Kale (It’s not fake they do find this extra bitter.)

I think in general we all know what it feels like when sudden change happens and fast and everything you once knew has rapidly change. 

 

so with that being said these new changes need to be fast interns of them eating real food (No junk or fake foods) but then slow in introducing all of the new health foods all at one time.. you understand?



Overtime they’ll have their favs, and youll be able to give that to them plus keep adding new healthy foods to the menu, so you don’t end up in a ridged eating habit or get bored with what you’re eating.

 

Snack Better

If you missed this YT video then please watch before reading on (Click Here).

Ok so now I’m trusting you’ve seen the video and will carry on from there…

 

Just remember to watch out for portion sizes and not to over eat, the portion seizes for young children of course should always be small one.

 

Make sure that snack time is not near dinner time because they want be able to eat the dinner you have worked hard to make, if it’s close to dinner time then give something real small.

Some other examples you could give your kids for snacks are below..

Apples
Bananas
Nuts (Not K.P ones they are really salty)
Cheese
Hard-boiled eggs
Grapes
Carrots
Unsalted popcorn

 

Offer Choices

Nobody likes to be forced to do something they don’t want to do, especially young kids or teenage kids.

 

So this healthy eating habit is just the same too.

Overtime when your kids are adjusted to healthy eating you can start introducing choices for example between apple slices or Cucumber slices.

 

It gives your kids a choice, all the while keeping their health very Di Nutritional.

Even looking over different types of new foods and then asking them which one they would love to try. 

 

Or letting them come with some ideas will get them more into the idea of this and not hate it like this is a life sentence or some form of punishment.

 

Also, I advise whatever you ask them to choose from set rules like the food must have three types of vegetables in them. 

 

This will avoid just having the same meal every day because it pushes them to pick greens that fit with what they want to eat so it tastes good.

If you don’t have the best of relationships with your kids, this will help you because your kids will feel heard, because every kid wants to feel like their voice is being heard and that they matter.

 

Don’t Use It As Punishment/Blackmail

When your kids are acting up, do your best not to use Vegetables as a form of punishment.

 

Saying things like you’ll make them eat it if they don’t behave, as this is very counterproductive and gives the stereotype that this is somehow bad and disgusting.

The aim of this is to get them to enjoy eating this as an automatic choice over Trash fast food which is bad for their health.

Also if your kid slips up or is caught in eating junk behind your back, speaking to them and letting them know the importance of healthy eating to have a longer life without preventable diseases is the smart move.

If you play the enforcer saying things like “EAT YOUR VEGETABLES” your kid will dig his heels in and you’ll become the enemy and this is not what we want.

 

Let Them Make Their Own Plates Overtime

Overtime letting your Kids take control of their own plate is another way to let them express and show their independence and get them interested in trying out new food.

Also, you don’t have to worry about what they will choose because you know that their health is of the upmost importance and they will not go behind your back. 

 

Which shows trust and they will trust you and your bond will be a lot stronger with them.

So this is kinda like offering them choice expect this time you’re not even around you could be a work, or just not at home and they make the healthy choice all on their own without you being there.

No matter if it is a snack or dinner, when you see that they’ve done good let them know and praise them. As this will raise their confidence and kids need this in life.

 

Lead By Example

None of the above will really work if you don’t lead the way and become the example, the role model that your kids need you to be.

Because If you don’t they’ll look for someone else on how they eat and who they pick might not be the right person, for example, a teenager, is more likely to try and eat like her fav model’ but what if he or she has an eating disorder?

 

Better to be that example, also it makes them not question you because you are doing it too, and you cannot be accused of being a hypercritic because you’re talking the talk and walking the walk.

 

Even if they are not happy at the start stick with it, and overtime they will respect you… and years from now they will thank you.
That to me is beautiful!

 

THAT’S IT!

 

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys. Please do let me know though…

      Stop using it as one. Make the healthy changes for yourself, speak with them and let them know that you was wrong for doing that, speak about the benfits not just of the food but for them that will get them to want to eat it.. then slowly start adding healthy food bit by bit, you can still do this.. you don’t have to be the bad parent but you can be the healthy one, I know you can do it Dilcan & I wish you all the best!
