with The Nutrition Kid™
Q: What are some ways to get kids actually eating healthier?
Take kids to a local fish market, talking about fish being heart-healthy for mom and dad, teach them what is caught locally; have them pick out fresh local fish for the family to eat.
Teach kids about grilling and get them to choose veggies to grill; make shish-kabobs together.
Teach kids to cook a few healthy things, over the course of the summer.
Make one night a week “Kids Cook” night.
Talk about the best choices on restaurant and fast-food menus
Expose kids to the 12 power foods, and asking them to find tasty-sounding recipes that include them: almonds, apples, blueberries, brazil nuts, broccoli, green tea, olive oil, red beans, salmon, spinach, sweet potatoes, wholegrain wheat, yogurt.
