It's hard to get your kids to eat right. No surprize!
If you are looking for help here's a great place to start ...
Dr. William Sears provides us with this brilliant video presentaton in one of the best nurtitional strategy videos I have seen to help moms and dads. Breaking down what seems to be the over whelming task of teaching and getting your kids to eat right into 9 Simple Steps to a Healthier Family. Each step accompanies clear and consise directions, suggestions and recommendations on how to implement the healthy eating tips.
For example, Dr. William Sears makes this suggestion re. healthy snacks. To help your kids eat healthy snacks, use a muffin tin, fill it with "grow foods" and encourage your small child to feed themselves "graze" throughout the day. I tried this for my kids, they loved it and I did too. Encouraging your child to eat healthy, teaching them the foods to eat, have fun and feel independent all at the same time, what could be better!
Here is the video for you. The whole presentation is about 15 minutes. Watch it with your kids!
