Hunger in children leads to crankiness. Growing children need to eat regularly to ward off hunger pains. Children should eat 3 meals and 2 small snacks per day. If you can plan meals ahead your children will benefit from healthier eating habits. Preparing healthy meals and freezing them is a great way to ensure the temptation of feeding them fast and processed foods get skipped when you’re low on time. Packing healthy snacks for outings such as yoghurts, carrot sticks, fruit and smoothies can be great for fighting off hunger. You might consider keeping a cooler box in the car stocked with healthy food.
To get your kids eating healthy, you will need to eat healthy too. Don’t let your kids see you binging on sugary snacks and make sure they see you enjoy and appreciate healthy foods.
Bring imagination into mealtimes and get creative with healthy eating. Tell children their broccoli florets are mini trees, tell them their turnips are what their favourite cartoon hero eats. If you want to get even more creative you can try cutting some food into shapes or small pieces. Revive the great British egg and soldiers tradition-the pieces of toast are the soldiers who are rushing to rescue Humpty Dumpty who has fallen off the wall. Call your recipes funny names and make up stories to explain their meaning- ‘bubble and squeak, toad in the hole, fisherman’s pie’...feed their imagination while feeding their bellies!
Refusing food is often how children exercise their independence. Keep in mind that once there is food being offered, your child will not starve. Most food tantrums will not last long if you ignore them. If your child is hungry, they will eventually have to eat. Offer them a wide range of varying healthy food to prevent them getting stuck on one particular meal pattern. This will help them.
Find out which healthy foods your children enjoy and experiment with new ways of serving them, or new things to serve them with. Ask them to help you to prepare the salad by having them mix it for you. Giving them little tasks is a great way of getting them to take interest in the food and they’ll be far more likely to eat the product of some gentle work.
