One of the most important things you can do for your kids to feed them a healthy diet. But, trust me I get it that can be super challenging! Now is the time to start reinforcing healthy habits or create new ones if they have fallen by the wayside. Healthy eating habits can protect your kids from health problems such as obesity and diabetes, which are on the rise in the adolescent population. Here are 6 tips that can help your family stay on track:1. Feed them a healthy breakfast - try to keep this meal high in protein, fiber and healthy fats to get their day started on the right track and curb that mid-morning hunger. We often have a morning smoothie or smoothie bowl because it checks all the boxes.. you can see my recipe for smoothie bowls HERE. 2. Pack their lunch with healthy foods - gluten-free or lettuce wraps with free- range turkey and guacamole, organic apples and nut butter, or un-sweetened yogurt with berries. 3. Make healthy snacks - celery and peanut butter (ants on a log), veggies and hummus and there are even some healthier chip alternatives. 4. Let them help with dinner prep - the more they are invested in dinner the more likely they will eat it. Even little ones can help with mixing and adding ingredients - my 1.5 year old loves to join in when we make smoothies and muffins in the morning. 5. Make it fun! - zucchini spirals, unique foods like star fruit or get out the cookie cutters to make shapes. Kids love food on a stick -- so get some skewers out and let them help you prep their lunch. 6. Exposure - Try a variety of foods each week. The more things you try the more developed their palates will become and they will be more willing to eat and try other foods What are some of your go-to kid friendly recipes?
