Getting your kids to eat healthy food at home can be a challenge for any parent. That’s why we’ve come up with some awesome tips you and your kids will love and give you the satisfaction of knowing you are feeding them food that’s good for them.
Start the Day Right
Give your kids a delicious, healthy breakfast by replacing those ready to eat cereals with Maya Thinkheart Whole Wheat Pancakes combined with low-sugar syrup and/or fruit.
Instead of giving in to the pressure when your kids ask for sweets like candy and other unhealthy snacks, why not serve them some Maya Thinkheart Whole Wheat Carrot Cakes prepared with a sugar substitute or honey rather than white sugar. Replace sugary drinks and sodas with flavored tonic water or fresh fruit juice. Drink boxes containing pure fruit juice are relatively low on cost but high in nutrition.
Make it Fun
The secret to eating healthy is in the presentation. Decorate whole wheat pancakes with a bit of chocolate, candy, and fruit to create some wonderful designs that add color to their meal. If it looks fun and exciting, chances are your kids will eat it!
Dinnertime doesn’t have to be dull. Try our homemade Hearty Pizza that’s topped with cheese, meat, and vegetables.
As you can see, it’s not difficult to get your kids to eat healthy. It just takes a little extra thought and planning. Start by using these recipes from The Maya Kitchen and your children could be on their way to a happier, healthier lifestyle!
