How To Get Your Kids to Eat Well

The family that Eats well stays well

Getting your kids to eat healthy can be a tricky topic. Most parents I talk to know they need to eat healthier, but aren’t sure how to get their kids to do the same. I don’t know about you, but I do the grocery shopping in my house, not my son. I prepare and cook his breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so if he wants to eat, he eats what I give him. You, as the parent, lay the groundwork for your child’s eating habits. If you don’t want your child to grow up with bad eating habits, then it’s your job to set the example and pave the way.

Kids eat what you buy

I started making changes in my sons diet when he was around 6 years old. I thought to myself, this may not go well. But surprisingly, it did. I stopped buying cereal, I stopped buying fruit snacks and Cheese-Its and I started buying organic cheese sticks, blueberries, natural peanut butter, Ezekiel bread, eggs and nuts. Guess what? He started eating what I gave him. Did he complain? Of course he did! But he got over it and adjusted. He eats pretty darn clean for a 9 year old now. He knows I am not buying him cereal, Wonder Bread, Oreo Cookies or Lays potato chips. But there are so many other healthy alternatives out there. And there is such a thing as WHOLE FOOD. Kids need to eat whole food.

Why it’s so important to start young

Kids are resilient, but they aren’t invincible. Kids today are more obese and have more metabolic diseases than ever before. The cause of this is our highly processed diet, consisting of Lunchables, fast-food, and vending machine snacks. These types of foods lack any and all nutrients and minerals. You are not doing your child any favors by allowing them to eat sugary drinks and candy for snacks or treats. You are setting them up for a lifetime of disordered eating and obesity. I have successfully worked with parents and their kids on their nutrition and healthy habit changes. It is possible to have children that eat well. It just takes some discipline and strong resolve to see it through.
