Babies and kids are always refused eat foods and they completely avoid healthy foods even in home as well in schools.
But as parents we have care them to be healthy and strong included with their regular diet. If you want to be a good parent and your child wants to be healthy you have to analyze your food consumption of your regularly then only you can modify the best and healthy foods in their meal plan.
Here, I am going to suggest you that what are the ways there to provide healthy foods for your kids with some tips and tricks are there to follow
Tips to feed your child
In a family there might be different age category child are there and the difficulty faced by the mother is all of them have different food habits that make them get irritated. So follow these tips and trick which will be very useful for many mother, I hope so.
Make a schedule
Children need to eat every three to four hours: three meals, two snacks, and lots of fluids. If you plan for these, your child’s diet will be much more balanced and they’ll be less cranky, because they won’t be famished. Put a cooler in the car when you are out with your kids and keep it stocked with carrots, pretzels, yogurt, and water so we don’t have to rely on fast food.
If thinking about a weekly menu is too discouraging, start with two or three days at a time. A good dinner doesn’t have to be fancy, but it should be balanced: whole-grain bread, rice, or pasta; a fruit or a vegetable; and a protein source like lean meat, cheese, or beans. Often make simple entree soups or Mexican chili ahead of time and then freeze it; at dinnertime, I heat it up and add whole-grain bread and a bowl of cut-up apples or melon to round out the meal.
Don’t become a short-order cook
Mother will get a bad habit that making two suppers — one that knew the kids would like and one for their husband and them. It was exhausting. So prepare one meal for everybody and serve it family-style so the kids can pick and choose what they want. Children often mimic their parents’ behavior, so one of these days; they’ll eat most of the food you serve to them.
Bite your tongue
As hard as this may be, try not to comment on what or how much your kids are eating. Be as neutral as possible. Remember, you’ve done your job as a parent by serving balanced meals; your kids are responsible for eating them. If you play food enforcer saying things like eat your vegetables your child will only resist.
Import new foods slowly
Children are new-food-phobic by nature. Just tell your kids that their taste buds sometimes have to get used to a flavor before they will like the taste. A little hero worship can work wonders too. That if you tell them just their favorite person will regularly eat so that only he is becoming so strong then automatically they will try to taste.
If your kids won’t eat vegetables, experiment with dips. Children will try the vegetable when you served them a thinly cut carrot with some ranch salad dressing. Many children will like hummus, salsa, and yogurt-based dressing.
Make mornings count
Most families don’t eat enough fiber on a daily basis, and breakfast is an easy place to sneak it in. Look for high-fiber cereals for a quick fix or make up batches of whole-grain pancake and waffle batter that last all week.
Creep in soy
Even if your kids don’t have milk allergies, soy milk is a terrific source of healthy phytochemicals. Kids don’t like soy milk but they don’t notice when it’s hidden in a recipe. Use the low-fat, calcium-fortified kind in some recipes that call for milk, such as oatmeal, mashed potatoes, and sauces.
Allow kids to cook
If your children become involved in choosing or preparing meals, they’ll be more interested in eating what they’ve created. Take them to the store, and let them choose produce for you. If they’re old enough, allow them to cut up vegetables and mix them into a salad.
Cut back on junk
Remember, your kids are in charge of the foods that enter the house. By having fewer junk foods around, you’ll force your children to eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and dairy products.
