An easy way to have kids eat healthy is to only offer them healthy options. You hold the purse strings. If you don’t buy it, they can’t eat it.
Have plenty of fresh fruit on hand sitting out on the table. Cut up a bunch of fresh veggies and bag them up for easy access. Nuts are a great snack as is popcorn.
When it comes to cereal, look for those containing 4 grams of sugar or less. If they want it sweeter they can add a banana or berries.
PB & J sandwiches are a kid staple. Smucker’s offers a low sugar version that is wonderful. The lower sugar has a much better fruit flavor then the regular and doesn’t contain the artificial sweeteners that the sugar free does. The same goes for peanut butter. Jiff offers one of theirs with 2 grams of sugar called “Simply Jiff”. Bread is never white. Always buy 100% whole wheat.
Remember little eyes are always watching. If they see you eating making healthy choices they are sure to follow.
