National Child Health Day: Simple Ways to Make Nutrition Fun
In observance of Child Health Day on October 7, we’ve put together some simple tips to help parents make nutrition fun! Sometimes getting kids to eat healthy can be a difficult chore, but making wholesome eating interesting for the whole family will make it easier to create a nutritious routine. These simple tips may help pave the way to a healthier and happier family.
1. Sign-up for a Cooking Class – Setting a good example as a parent is important, especially when your choices reflect your child’s health. Taking part in a cooking class with your kids can be a positive experience for both you and your children. By teaching them how to use a variety of ingredients to create their own special creations, they can become more invested in the foods they choose to eat later on. The experience can motivate and empower your children to make healthier choices.
2. Encourage Colors for Dinner – Encourage your family to eat a rainbow every night! Hold a contest for your kids to see who can add the most colors from fruits and veggies to their dinners. This can be a fun way to ensure steady nutrition in your home. Since younger kids are notorious for playing with their food, encourage the use of colorful finger-foods such as berries and apples.
3. Fill Nutrition Gaps in New Ways - While kids may be picky about certain foods on the food pyramid, there are always fun ways to fill in the nutrition gaps! For example, kids can be hard to convince that fish is a better option than burgers, so you may need to seek out yummy tasting alternatives to get your child to take-in those healthy fats. Coromega Kids is a fun line of gummies and squeezes that deliver optimum omega-3 nutrition and serve the essential fatty acids that kids need. Products include:
