The first step to changing your kids’ food preferences is to shift the mentality from “what a drag it is trying to get my kids to eat healthy,” to one that celebrates food and how truly delicious it can be.
Here are a few ways to spice it up and get the whole household excited about their fruits and vegetables. 1. Blend delicious combinations into smoothies, which can begin to taste like dessert! 2. Next time you prepare broccoli with dinner, why not top it with marinara sauce and add shredded cheese for “pizza vegetables” or how about a pasta dish made from zucchini spirals or a side of vegetables with a delicious tahini dressing? 4. Start to upgrade your pantries with higher quality snacks. By beginning to stock the pantry with healthier choices, taste buds will slowly shift. Though it can take time, it is certainly within your power to teach your kids to love their fruits and veggies!
