Healthy Eating For Kids
Kids Look up to You, Parents
Something to think about is healthy eating for kids starts, with parents leading by example, each and everyday. All of us need the same types of nutrients-proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates and last but not least water.
One of the differences about kids nutrition is the amount of nutrients needed at different stages of life. Research has shown that children and even teens really do listen to their parents, especially if the parents walk the walk and not just talk the talk.
Cooking together- Yum Family Fun
Parents can aid in the teaching of healthy eating for kids by inviting children and teens into the kitchen for a lesson /teaching of nutrition and cooking. Having fun can be the best teaching aid of great health, and new and daring recipes.
Developing good eating habits are life lessons everyone can share and remember. Parents can have a huge advantage in sharing with example of healthy choices with food. Apples, not candy bars are just as easy to substitute for a wonderful snack.
- Nutrition starts in the home and has long lasting effects for each of us

Everyone loves to snack and having healthy snacks on hand is possible. Eating all your meals is important. If you skip a meal or go without food for a long time, you can feel sleepy, hungry, or tired. Then you might eat a sugary or salty treat to fill you up fast, instead of eating foods with more nutrients.
Cupcakes and potato chips are easy, fast and have little nutritional value for the body. Fresh fruits have great nutrition value and are easy to take on the run. Kids need good nutrients to have adequate energy and growth for development.
