Today, I want to share an article from UNICEF -How to raise a healthy eater.

Nutrition plays a crucial role in the development of a healthy child. However, the benefits of a good diet and nutrition do not end with the child’s childhood. Healthy eating habits in early childhood enable children to form positive interactions with food and grow with it. Making good eating habits fun and healthy is not just for kids—the whole family can participate! Here are six methods to help you get started:

1.Develop a healthy diet

Children are constantly watching what you do, even at mealtimes. Your children can learn how to eat healthy, drink healthy beverages, and partake in fun physical activities if you set an example. Setting an example of healthy, whole foods is one way to lead by example.

2.Keep a healthy diet mindset

It is essential to have a healthy eating mindset in order to prevent diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Here are some tips to help your child:

  • Assist them in becoming aware of whether they are physically hungry and to be in tune with their bodies.
  • Avoid using food as a reward or punishment.
  • Do not restrict specific foods. Limiting certain foods, such as sweets, can actually make children crave more.

3.Don’t urge your children to “clean your plate!”

If you believe that cleaning your child’s plate will help them get the nutrients they need from the food, then it could negatively affect their eating habits. Try eating vegetables in front of your child if he or she doesn’t eat them and let them see the joy you get from eating them. Your children will learn from you what to eat and what not to eat, so encourage them as much as you can. Combine your child’s favorite healthy food with a serving of fruit or vegetables, or let them pick a food they’ve never tried before. Organizing colorful fruits and vegetables in interesting shapes will also make them look more appealing. If a child doesn’t like a new food right away, try it again and don’t give up!

4.Controlling the appetite is crucial

Getting too much food can lead to weight gain, so teach your child how much to eat per meal. For example, there is a simple way to visualize the intake of each meal: it is recommended that a serving of pasta, rice or cereal is the size of a fist, a serving of meat is about the size of your palm, and the portion of fatty foods such as butter should be less than A thumbs up.

5.Morning hours is the best time of the day to work

Many families are in a rush in the mornings, but eating a balanced breakfast can help your child get nutrients critical for growth, such as calcium and fiber. Switch sweet cereals and pastries that are high in calories and low in nutrients for nutrient-dense options such as plain yogurt and fresh fruit, which will prolong your child’s feeling of fullness.

6.Make activities fun

By providing your child with healthy foods and fun activities, you will not only help them develop and improve their health, but will also lay the foundation for lifelong habits of healthy eating.
