For many of us, getting our children to eat healthy can be a hard task. Somedays, I would rather clean the toilet, mow the lawn, than fight with Evan over his food. If it was up to him, he’d live off soda and cupcakes.
We have implemented some pretty strict rules in our house about food. This seems to have worked in keeping Evan’s food choices on the healthy and narrow.
We made some significant changes to his food routines that seem to have made the difference.
- Switch to organic milk and eliminate most other beverages and drink more water.
- Purchase a water filter with reusable bottles so we could have water bottles readily available.
- Keep plenty of fruit and vegetables in the house. We also make sure that they are cut up and ready to go at a moments notice.
- Pack veggies and fruit for sporting games instead of chips and salty snacks.
My biggest tip is – do not bring the junk food into your home. If you don’t have it, they cannot eat it. When you don’t have it, unhealthy snacks on occasion become more of a treat – just outside of your home.
