One of the biggest problems when coming up with ideas, healthy lunch for your family is sure that his little actually eat them! It makes sense to pack a lunch, if your children should be exchanged with their classmates, or in the country, just pushing around the plate and hope you will not notice.
A great way to achieve this is why some of the children in the process of healthy eating. Getting start preparing their meals at the same time educate them about the healthy ingredients.
The key to this is easy to start. Try something like a chicken with feta hummus roll-up low-fat dressing or ranch. The key is to choose something that’s fun for them (with supervision) and Rolls-ups are always fun (although usually dirty!). Pita bread is also a great choice, fun for children. Help them make a tuna salad with light mayonnaise, celery and onion. An alternative to this is to add the tomato and avocado instead. Your children will have fun filling the mixture into a pita!
Although only provide healthy ingredients, we will make decisions within the healthy range. Ask about the foods they would like to put on your jacket. Ask them why and describe a little about the nutritional value of food at the same time. This means that children have fun and learn at the same time!
When your kids are a little more knowledge about healthy foods, I think it’s a great idea to be part of organizing the menus of the week. You can start small, just give them a few options. Would you prefer carrot sticks or celery? Snacks they would like, hummus or salsa and refried beans?
Regardless of which option to go, encourage and support education to the healthy aspects of each of their decisions.
Maybe even try some combinations together again – even when not working, this is fun!
Some tips to make your kids in the kitchen:
– Do not try to get your small to make complicated dishes at first, it will only off.
– Plan your kitchen toy-date to a time when you are not rushed. This is not a disaster without trial and may require patience! Maybe they start with the weekend and work from there.
One thing that will make your life easier is if you buy a decent lunch box. The bento boxes are all the rage right now, but nothing with the sections will actually do. Trying to reach a formula as a main dish, vegetables / fruits and sweets. They are not only making life much easier, you are instilling simple guidelines that will stay with their children for the rest of their lives!
Also, try to plan meals in advance if possible. This will make it easier for you and also gives children the opportunity to be part of planning the menu. They can talk about what they want to eat next week and get excited about it.
This is the key to successfully introduce their children to eat healthy – get them excited about healthy eating and creating partnerships rather than stay with them for life. They are also benefiting greatly their lives here and now. In studies, healthy eating has been linked to better school performance, the extra energy, motivation and a happy childhood.
