Making Meals Fun
Getting kids to eat a good meal can be tough, but with a few simple tricks and tips, you can work to make mealtime less of a battle at home.
First – get your kids involved in cooking. Studies show children who help cook or feel like they had a hand in what they’re eating are more likely to prefer fruits and vegetables. In fact, the study found children were also more confident about the need to eat healthy if they helped with meal prep and cooking.
Even the youngest kids can help stir a batter or sprinkle cheese over a dish. Older children can help grate vegetables, cut up ingredients and mix together ingredients. Make sure everyone’s supervised of course!
