Kids don’t like to eat healthy foods.
Do you believe that statement? It seems that many adults actually do believe that kids won’t eat anything unless it’s bright blue, filled with additives, and covered in sugar.
I disagree. Kids actually like a wide variety of foods, but the key is exposure. If kids aren’t exposed to new foods, they don’t eat them. When kids aren’t given the opportunity to try healthy foods in small amounts, a variety of times, and in the company of family members who enjoy these foods themselves – they may never learn to enjoy healthy eating.
Don’t despair, because there’s a fantastic website that’s packed with tips, suggestions, and recipes to encourage our kids to eat and enjoy healthy foods.
