How To Make Healthy Eating Fun for The Family
If you want to change the eating habits of your family, you need to know how to incorporate healthy food choices into their every day diet. Here are a couple of ways that you can do this.
Introduce New Fruits and Vegetables to Children in a Fun Way
If you want to get your children involved in trying new foods, get them to do the choosing.
You can make this into a fun game by using the computer.
Make a list of names of the different fruit and vegetables and take a look at them on the computer.
Work together and get the children to agree on something that they would like to try.
If it is fruit, you can buy some when you are next at the supermarket, prepare it and share it as a fun snack.
Ask the children what they think. Do they like it?
If they do, then this is something that you can add as their school snack. If they do not like it, at least they tried something new and you can then pick out something else on the list.
If the option is a vegetable, find out how to prepare it and choose the recipe you feel your children will enjoy.
Again, if they like the vegetable, you can continue to buy it and if they do not, move on to the next choice.
This is a great way to get the children involved and to educate them on the vast variety of fruit and vegetables that are available.
Get The Whole Family to Cook Together
As well as getting the children to choose which fruit and vegetables they would like to try, you can also get them to help you cook.
You can make this a weekly session that you do with the whole family.
Buy a selection of healthy food magazines and healthy cookbooks and sit down with the whole family.
Everyone gets to choose a meal that they would like to prepare. You can then write up a timetable so that each week you try out one of the meals.
You can even open it up for a discussion about the benefits of the healthy food, ensuring that the children understand that healthy food can also be tasty food.
If the children are old enough, you could even nominate a particular meal as being that child's signature dish and they can be in charge of cooking that meal for the family.
This is a wonderful way to introduce children to cooking skills and getting them prepared for adult life.
Children will readily accept healthy food as fun and tasty food as long as they are introduced to new fruits, vegetables and healthy meals in the right way.
The good news is that healthy cooking doesn't have to be difficult or boring.
With just a few small changes you can make a big difference in the health of you and your family.
