Looney Tunes Eating Right Kids Program Part II: Giveaway!


~~The giveaway is now CLOSED~~
Let's continue last week's discussion of the Looney Tunes Eating Right Kids program and healthy eating. We've been so concerned about the quality and nutritious value of kids food products partly because of the persisting severity of child obesity, which may put a child's health and self-esteem at risk.According to a 2009 study, almost 1 in 5 American 4-year-olds is obese, meaning more than half a million 4-year-olds! The number of overweight and obese children (10 to 17 years old) is at or above 30 percent in 30 states. Warner Bros. Consumer Products' and Safeway's Eating Right Kids initiative was actually highlighted by the Federal Trade Commission for its ability to have a positive impact on childhood obesity. Kudos to the program!

While the Eating Right Kids page on Momlogic provides us with expert opinions on healthy eating habits, I'd love to gather some tips and ideas from moms and dads like you. You could win an awesome Looney Tunes gift basket by sharing your thoughts.

Question of the Week: How do you teach your kids about healthy eating choices? What works best for your family?

I stubbornly believe in the power of "leading by example". Kids love imitating adults in all aspects. If we as parents consciously make healthy eating choices, our kids will follow the lead and develop healthy eating habits as well. My son is particularly good at picking up my hints. When I drink water, he turns to his bottle. When I eat fruit, he asks for what I'm having. When I show him how happy I become after eating a lot of vegetables, he wants to take more of them too. This will sure benefit the entire family if everyone is trying to eat healthy foods.

Now I can't wait to learn about your secret ingredients to healthy eating! Meanwhile, feel free to email your questions to eatingright@wb.com and nutritionist Haylie Pomroy will answer them on the Eating Right blog.

I try to incorporate a vegetable and a fruit w/every meal. I teach my son that what you put in your body is what fuels it. If you put in junk, you'll get junk. Plus, soda is bad for your teeth.

i try to show my daughter that i eat healthy and i also say she will get sugar bugs on her teeth if she eats to much junk.
thanks

joeandbridge said...

I serve a vegeatable and fruit with both lunch and dinner (dinner, now that they're all in school). I also do not allow sugary snacks or sodas (except special occasions) We have 4 kids, so they eat what I serve or they go hungry. I am not a short order cook. Also, we do NOT eat any fast food-maybe 6x a year. Thanks for the giveaway.

joeandbridge said...

Question from last week-The only challenge I have getting our children to eat healthy is breakfast. If they don't like what cereal is in the house, they just will not eat and wait until lunch. Not good as we all know how important breakfast is. Thanks!

joeandbridge said...

I follow your blog. Thanks!

Laura said...

When we're at the grocery store and the kids are attracted to all of those brightly colored but so bad for you cereals, I talk about why the cereals that we eat are better for them (lower in sugar, more natural ingredients, etc.).

But I do make sure that I keep a large variety of healthy foods around, and I let them see that I eat well, and that I have high energy and stamina because of it. I try to lead by example.

I teach my kids about eating right by setting an example. I serve, and eat, the proper portions of each food group, I try not to eat too much junk, although once in a while I will have a dessert or snack that I really shouldn't have. But I tell my kids once in a while treats like that are okay, in moderation. As a family we also experiment with foods to try to get the kids to eat things they're not familiar with or fond of.

By example. We eat the same foods together and we do exercise together.

We try to always make healthy decisions so our kids see us eating healthy. No one in our family drinks pop so our kids don't either. We only allow juice once a day. We try to incorporate one fruit and one veggie with each meal. No one is allowed to say YUCK unless they've tried it first!

One Cryptic Mama said...

I teach my kids healthy eating by leading by example, as well as offering them new things often (I never thought I'd have a 2 year old asking for soy milk). We don't eat many "boxed" meals- most of what I make is 95% from scratch. Plus, we have a veggie garden, and my daughter always asks to go out & pick out veggies for dinner.

One Cryptic Mama said...

answer to last weeks question: the biggest challenge for me is planning ahead for dinner. If I don't, we end up having something not nearly as healthy for dinner. If I do, I can utilize my crockpot & then not spend a lot of time on dinner.

clarissa@neiding.com said...

i make eating healthy dinners together as a family a very important part of the day. We also compare and read labels on things in the house and at the store all the time and talk about what it means. For example we will look at the big candy bar at the checkout and notice its actually labeled as 3 servings and figure out the total calories in it and talk about how much other healthier choices you could have made instead.

Well, I try hard to eat well in front of the kids (they're 3 and 5), and we talk about how some foods are better for your body than others, but having treats sometimes is ok too, and how too much of any one food might not be good for your tummy - even the healthy ones. (Ever seen a toddler's #2 after Grampa gave her FOUR corn on the cobs?!?) I try to preach - and practice - moderation, basically.

marthajane said...

I try to provide a wide range of food choices, and not make some things "bad" and some things "good". I never use food as a reward or punishment.

I try to teach my kids by example. If we have something that they think they don't like I will make them try it. If they still don't like it then at least they tried it. I do try to make them eat some sort of healthy food and we drink a lot of water with our meals.

Never start little ones on sugar and they won't even want it as they grow up. sugar is a learned behavior that is not healthy.

I love to give my kids lots of options. We usually a have two vegetable options for dinner and they are allowed to leave one. Also, they know that if it's new, they HAVE to try it. They are pretty open to trying new things when they know it's ok if they don't like it. I may have the only kids on the block who ask for roasted eggplant!

I agree with your comment about leading by example. My kids learn their habits from me! I try to instill healthy habits from the start...we start with vegetables and fruits when they first start solid foods (none of that rice cereal). I also serve a couple of veggies at every meal and always have salad as an option. Finally, we have a huge garden every summer. I really think my kids have learned to love produce because they have been such a big part of growing it!

I try to limit the junk food in our home. My 7 & 9 year old daughters would rather eat sweets and whatnot rather than fruits and veggies but if there are no sweets in the house then they have to eat fruits & veggies. Plus I try to set an example by choosing healthy foods myself.

I commented on this article:
How do you ensure that your child eats healthy at school, daycare, or whenever you're not with him or her? What are some of your kids' favorite snacks?

I agree that "eating by example" is the best way to teach. We also require at least two bites of everything on the plate before you are allowed to leave the table. This helps them get over hang-ups like not eating because they don't like the "look" of the food.

Thank you for hosting this give-away!

How do you teach your kids about healthy eating choices? What works best for your family? I have taught her to eat the colors of the rainbow. We go to the produce section and she brings along a picture of a rainbow she colored. She then gets to pick her fruits and veggies trying to get a fruit and or veggie for each color. We are vegetarian, so the produce section is where we purchase most of our food. The on to soy, legumes etc.

I must say that I haven't really thought about teaching my kids to eat right. They certainly get their share of chicken nuggets, but I try to make sure their favorite fruits or vegetables are on the table, too. I also have been trying to use more whole wheat flour in my baking - not a big thing, but small directions towards more healthy choices.

I have a toddler and an infant, so we are really in the beginning stages. we don't have a lot of snacks throughout the day, we rarely eat anything after dinner, and we name his veggies all sorts of different fun things~like broccoli for trees.

Take kids to a U-Pick farm and pick fruits and veggies with them. Then let them pick recipes to cook their pickings. The more involved they are the more interested in eating the good stuff.

I teach my grandchildren to eat all their vegetables as not only are they good for you they taste good!

We regularly go on an adventure to a produce store to pick out some new things to try - the kids get very excited about it!

What works best for us is teaching by example. When we eat healthier, so do our kids. We also talk to them a lot about why we choose the foods we do - what nutrients are in the foods we eat, etc.
