Is exercising alone, a solution to healthy kids?

The answer is of course ‘No’. Regular exercise complimented with nutritional and balanced diet is an effective way to ensure a healthy child. No matter, how tiring it may seems to convince your child to opt for healthy food options, you as parents have an innate duty to accomplish it to ensure proper child growth and development. The concept of balanced diet is no matter the most sought after discussion among parents, but still, they are overwhelmed to receive information from different sources So, here we sum up some ways that can help you deal with your munchkin when it comes to healthy eating:

  • Make the nutritive food look savory and provide multiple options:
    Often forcing down the kids to eat vegetables in a much stereotyped look hailing through ages may end up, child throwing tantrums on dining table. Provide your kids with variety of healthy food options with attractive presentations to make them feel appetizing. A simple example of it may be a Frankie puffed with bundle full of veggies. Importantly, according to child psychology, children often do what they see. So, be a great role model by including healthy food in your platter before you teach them the same.
  • Do not completely checkout the sweets and snacks from your child’s diet:
    Pressuring the kids for eating healthy food in an aggressive way may lead to development of negativity towards the healthy food option. As a parent you must also provide sweets and snacks but in moderation and not as a reward. Often parents are found bribing their kids for chocolates or pastries, which may lead to a formation of negative impact and may affect the child development as well. Brainstorm ways like family dinner, talk on nutrition etc, in which you can induce healthy eating habits in your children.
  • Educate children to recognize hunger cues.
    Rather than you deciding how much your child should eat, let the child decide for him as to when the stomach is full or empty. This way you can save your child from developing the habit of overeating.

And most importantly, keep your children psychically active that will leverage their appetite and give way to healthy child. Make healthy eating a fun and not tiresome-spun for your child to ensure long term outcomes and development of healthy eating habits.
