Healthy Habits - start them young!

Welcome to the Munchkin blog page.... here we will talk about all sorts of topics, ranging from healthy tips, interesting food and nutrition facts, discussions on fussy eating, pregnancy nutrition, diets for improved fertility and more....

Today we will give a few quick tips for creating healthy habits in your children.

Habits formed in childhood can last a life time.... give your kids a head start and help them develop healthy habits when they are young. 

Here are some tips:

 

* Let the kids help you in the kitchen- the more they are involved the more likely they are to try new foods and become enthusiastic about fresh healthy food and cooking. My son often picks up the foods I am preparing and puts them into his mouth - carrots, beans, cheese, etc... the other day he even tried to eat raw sweet potato! 

* Offer lots of colours from a very young age - green, red, orange, yellow vegetables.... if there is colour in every meal your child will learn that this is normal and variety is key to a healthy diet.

* Avoid processed breakfast cereals (they are almost always packed with sugar), give the little ones oats with berries or homemade muesli for a fibre and nutrient rich start to the day

* Serve your bubs natural yoghurt, if you get them onto this early they will learn to love it and won't get hooked on the flavoured yoghurts, which have added sugars to sweeten them up. You can always add berries to the natural yoghurt for extra flavour!

* Water!! It is the best drink for all of us. Try not to offer juice and cordials - once you start this it can be very difficult to get the kids to ever accept good old fashioned water on its own.
