Does healthy eating imply less tasty food? Certainly not! As the Looney Tunes Eating Right Kids program shows, food and beverages can be delicious and nutritious at the same time. You may read my earlier posts here and here to learn more about this great program. I believe that if we consciously and consistently expose our children to healthy food and snacks, they will soon discover the truth that healthy by no means equates nasty. On the contrary, a lot of all natural or organic food tastes distinguishably superior to processed food.
This week, our discussion will center around the following topic.
Question of the Week: 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?
Whenever I'm not with my child, I will pack fruit cups and yogurt to take with him. I will also provide clear instructions for the caregiver as to how often and how much he can eat those snacks. Yogurt is my son's number one favorite. He also loves fruits (esp. apple, banana, kiwi fruit, and water melon), cheerios, bread sticks, and granola bars.
