30 Blogs with Tricks for Getting Kids to Eat Healthy

It’s not always easy to get kids to eat a healthy diet.  Many would like to live on pizza and chicken nuggets, not broccoli and spinach, and making the switch to feeding your kids a healthy diet may be received with some resistance.  Keep the faith; there are tricks for getting your kids to eat healthy.  As you know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it’s very important for your child to eat breakfast so they have brain food to fuel them through their day.  Breakfast tips and other tricks for getting kids to eat their fruits and veggies can be found in these 30 blog entries.

It can be a struggle to get out of the house in the mornings and the kids don’t always want to eat breakfast nor do they always have the time.  This is why it’s important for you to set the example by regularly eating a balanced breakfast.  Whether you have to get everyone up a littler earlier to eat some breakfast or prepare some options for eating breakfast on the go, you can always fit in a quick meal to start the day.  Here are five blog posts that will give you some tricks for getting your kids to eat breakfast.
Fruits and Vegetables
How many fruits and vegetables a child needs to eat will vary by age.  A good rule of thumb would be 3 to 5 servings.  For example: a 4 to 5 year old should eat 2 cups of vegetables and 1 ½ cups of fruit every day.  Here are five blog articles that will give you tips on how to get your kids to eat more fruits and veggies.
Healthy Snacks
Some children prefer to graze on small meals throughout the day instead of sitting down to three big meals.  This way of eating is actually ideal for the human body because it keeps the metabolism functioning at top speed and gives your body all of the fuel it needs.  Making healthy snacks available to your kids will ensure they eat healthy snacks.  More importantly, you should get rid of snacks that are unhealthy so your kids have no other option than to eat the healthy snacks.
Are your kids picky eaters?  It’s not uncommon for a child to be selective with the type of foods they eat, and many kids are finicky when it comes to eating meat.  At this age, it’s more likely that the child doesn’t like having to chew the meat for a long time than actually having an aversion to the taste.  Here are some tips for getting more protein into your child’s diet so you don’t have to worry so much when they don’t eat their meat at dinner.
Healthy Diet

Hiding Veggies
When all else fails, you can learn to hide vegetables in your kid’s food.  Zucchini in the chocolate cake, carrots in the spaghetti sauce, and spinach in the smoothies are just a few ways to hide the good stuff.  These five blog entries will give your more ideas.
