Every day, I deal with both the big and small foodmakers. I am the mother of three-thirds of seven years, all of whom are very different in eating habits; I’m also a dietician who teaches professional athletes on Chicago Bears and Chicago Bulls teams to improve their diet. Although a big basketball player or 300 pound linebacker is hard to convince that junk food is bad for him, it can be a daunting task for my children to eat well. My daughter Kathleen has serious and life-threatening allergic reactions to eggs, peanuts and tree nuts, and Julia will not eat fresh fruits; Fortunately, my son, Marty, will try to do just that. Mother constantly tells me that she feels guilty about her children’s diet; They know how important it is to feed healthy children to their children, but they are not sure how to do it. Despite my background in nutrition, I had to undergo some tests and error with my tests. Here is the most important lesson I have learned, here you should help guide your children for better eating
1. Children need to eat every three to four hours: three meals, two snacks, and lots of fluids. If you plan for them, then your baby’s diet will be more balanced and it will be less irritable because he will not be hungry. When I get out with my children and keep up with carrots, pretzels, curd and water, then I get a cooler in the car, so we do not have to trust fast food.
2 If it is very difficult to think about the weekly menu, then start with two or three days at a time. A good dinner should not be fancy, but it should be balanced: whole grain bread, rice, or pasta; A fruit or a vegetable; And a protein source such as lean meat, cheese, or beans. I often make simple admission soup or Mexican chili before time and then freeze it; On dinnertime, I heat it and add a bowl of cut-up apples or melons around whole grain bread and food.
Do not become short-order cooked.
3 A few years ago, I found a bad habit. I do two dinners – the one whom I knew that the kids would like me and one for my husband and me It was tedious. Now I prepare a meal for everyone and serve it in a family style so that children can choose and choose what they want. Children often mimic the behavior of their parents, so one of these days, they will eat most of the food items I serve them.
bite your tongue
4. Do not comment on how much or how many of your children are eating as much as you can. Be as neutral as possible. Remember, you have done your job as a parent by serving balanced meals; Your children are responsible for eating them. If you play cooking things like “Eat your vegetables” – your child will only resist.
Slowly introduce new food items.
5 Children by nature are new-food-physics. I tell my children that sometimes their tasting buds have to be used for tasting before they like taste. A small hero can perform puja miracles too. Marty refused to try peas until I told him that Michael Jordan eats them to stay big and strong. Now Marty eats peas all the time.
6 If your children will not eat vegetables, experiment with spices and dip. Kathleen tried his first vegetable when I served him a thin cut carrot with a thin salad dressing. My children also like ketchup, hamas, salsa, and curd-based dressing. Choose a dip or masala with real ingredients, such as Simply Henes Ketchup (this is made without high fructose corn syrup).
Count the morning.
7 Most families do not eat enough fiber on daily basis, and breakfast is an easy place to hide it in breakfast. Find high fiber grains for quick fixes. Or, do what I do and batch the entire grain pancake and waffle batter throughout the week. For a batch that serves five, together 2 cup whole wheat pastry flour, 4 teaspoons Baking powder, 1/2 tsp. Salt, and 2 Tbs. sugar. When you are ready to cook, then mix 2 TBS. Ground flex food, 2 cups of water, 3 tbs Canola oil, 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla, and 2 tbs. Flattery
Sneak in soya
8 Even if your children are not allergic to milk, then soy milk is a terrible source of healthy phytochemicals. My children do not like soy milk but when it is hidden in the recipe then do not pay attention. I use a low fat, calcium-richified type in some recipes that call for milk, such as porridge, mashed potatoes and sauces.
Sprinkle some sugar
9 Julia eats her ripe carrot with a little brown sugar, and I add a little bit of beer to her lip juice to make the juice. Kathleen and Marty like spraying sugar on their fruit. I know they will eventually increase this requirement for extra sweeteners, but in the meantime, they are eating fruits and vegetables.

Get kids to cook.
10 If your children are involved in choosing or preparing food, then whatever they make, they will be more interested in eating. Take them to the shop, and let them choose the yield for you. If they are old enough, then chop them vegetables and add them to the salad. Although Julia refuses to eat fresh fruit, she and I make banana or apple muffins together-and she always eats them after working once.
Cut back on junk.
11 Remember, you do not – are not in charge of food items entering your child-house. With less junk food around, you will force your children to eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and dairy products.
12 Having less healthy eating prevents them from being barred sometimes – and this is even more attractive. We call candy, soda, and cookies “sometimes” foods. I usually buy healthy cereals such as chirios and risin bran, but when I go to my grandparents or when we are on leave, I have given my children sugar syrup. And I treat them every day for McDonald’s for lunch.
13 The more creative the food will be, the more the diversity of food items the kids eat. We make smiley-face pancakes and give foods stupid names. (Broccoli Flores “Baby Trees” or “Dinosaur Cuisine”). Anything mini is always a hit. I often use cookie cutter to change the toast in hearts and stars, which children love.
be a role model.
14 If you are on a continuous diet or eating habits, then your children will think that this kind of behavior is normal. Be honest with yourself about the types of food messages being sent by you. When you are hungry and when you are finished, trust your body, and your children will learn the
15 Adjust your attitude. Understand what your children eat over time, it is important. Having popcorn or ice cream suede in films has some real happiness in life. If your child likes juice, consider putting moth’s sensibles (it is 100% juice, yet 30% less sugar than 100% apple juice). Unless you balance them with smart eating options and physical activity, then your children will be fine.
