Healthy Eating Tips for Kids

The following are some tips on healthy eating for kid :

  • Lead by example. In order to train a child in healthy eating, the parent or guardian must also have good eating habits. Don't expect a child to love vegetables when the parent doesn't even touch them.

  • Don’t keep lots of crisps, sweets, biscuits and fizzy drinks in the house. Ration them, or keep them in a cupboard to which only you have access. Some children will graze on high-fat, high-salt snacks almost continually if left to their own devices, leaving them too full to eat a proper meal.

  • Breakfast is the most important meal for children. Ensure that children do not skip this meal. Try a high-fibre, low-sugar cereal, a boiled egg with wholemeal toast, or porridge with milk and fresh orange juice to drink.

  • Introduce new foods regularly. Your children are never going to eat mussels in a restaurant if they’ve never tried them at home. Let children help you cook – it may be messy and take longer, but it’ll make them interested in what they are eating.

  • If your children are aged 10 or above, let them choose and cook a meal themselves sometimes. They can shop for it too, and they’ll love it!

  • When you eat out, there’s no reason why it has to be McDonald’s. Take them to a local restaurant.

  • Try different foods on holiday. Don’t just go for chips ‘n’ sausages.

  • When you are weaning babies, try to make time to purée what you are eating, without salt. They will grow to love vegetables from an early age.

  • Encourage children to exercise outside. Tired children are hungry children, and they’ll wolf down whatever’s on the plate.

    Healthy eating for kid are important for a child's well being, both mentally and physically. I do hope that all parents and guardians will put in the extra effort to ensure that their child eats a healthy diet from a young age.
