Tips for teaching kids healthy eating habits and keeping your sanity. This post contains affiliate links.
Feeding kids can be exhausting, frustrating, and confusing. I've felt all of these things after working hard to make a nice dinner, only to have the kids say, "yuck!" It's easy to give up trying to give them the best foods we can and instead give them processed foods we know they won't complain about. It doesn't have to be that way though. I reject the idea that kids innately don't like vegetables or other particular foods. Our preschool was filled with 2 year-olds happily munching on kale strawberry salad and chia pudding at snack time. Kids in Japan happily eat sushi, while French kids eat escargot and boeuf bourguignon. These children don't have genetically different taste buds than American fast food loving kids. The difference is that they were taught how to eat, and never expected to eat from a kids menu of nuggets and hot dogs. While my kids won't eat everything, and I'm far from perfect, here are a few things I have learned. My goal with this blog is to help families live healthier happier lives, so I hope you'll find these tips helpful!
