As parents, we need to prepare healthy school meals for our children. Trying to encourage your children to make healthy food choices can be difficult enough while at home.
But when you put them in an environment around their friends in a school cafeteria with fried or unhealthy options…it can become a real challenge.
Meal prepping for your kids every day throughout the school year can become tough. The earlier you can instill the practice of making healthy food choices in your kids, the more likely they will be to continue making healthy decisions and be conscious about what they put into their bodies.
Involve Them in Choices
We all know the more you tell most kids to do something, the more they will try to do the exact opposite. It is just part of their nature. Try including them in shopping and prepping meals so that they feel like they are making choices.
Yes, we need to steer them in the right direction but asking for their input can help make them feel valued. For example, if you ask them to choose between two healthy options they will forget about what exactly they are picking and focus more on being allowed to make a decision.
I’m a fan of the low carbohydrate diet, keto, and carnivore diets because glucose-induced inflammation is the root cause of most diseases. We’ve got to have what can be an uncomfortable conversation with our children about diabetes, obesity, CVD, and how to prevent it.
I’m a parent and it is hard to get my kids to eat healthily. All we can do is lead with education, without shaming, and inspire them with our own actions. Trust me, they are paying attention, my kids are trying harder to make better decisions and exercise.
If we can control what they eat for breakfast and dinner by keeping it low carb, it’s okay if they are eating berries or bread for lunch if we can keep them active. It’s better than them drinking soda, fruit juices, candy and chips.
Make it Fun and Exciting
At your local grocery store and specialty kitchen stores, there are new ways to make food fun for kids. Finding ways to be creative with how the food looks can help hide the fact that it may be a healthy option and not what your little one typically likes.
This gives your child something to look forward to at lunchtime and will help to jump-start the process of them enjoying to eat healthily.
More Color the Better
When most people, especially kids, think of healthy food choices they may think bland and boring. Finding healthy options that are bright in color will give your child something to be excited about. Adding color can help make eating fun.
Try adding colorful fruits and veggies as much as possible to help change how your kids view what they are eating.
It is important to know that we are not trying to trick or deceive our kids into eating anything but instead we are breaking down some hurdles and walls that our children may put up because of how a particular food looks.
We want them to know that what they are eating is good for them once they find out that they actually enjoy what they are eating. This will set them up for a lifetime of making healthy food decisions and allow them an opportunity to achieve total fitness in the future.
