Bad eating habits are something that can be hard to change especially when it has become comfortable routines. But by keeping unhealthy choices out of your house, and bringing healthy options in, it is possible to give your child a better eating habit, even if he is the pickiest one.
What you need to know
Whether you are trying to cajole your little one to give peas a chance, or attempting to persuade him to drink something other than soft drinks, this healthy eating might be worth a try for him. Go over each day’s meal choices with your little one and challenge him to identify the healthiest option. That will help your child to be aware of all the selections he has to choose from and will gain experience in making nutritious food decisions. As for snacks, give him plenty of healthy snacks, such as apples. Your child may be oblivious to how many empty calories he consumes daily from sugary drinks. To help him develop a healthy liquid calorie habit from an early age, give him plenty of water and plain milk to avoid getting him used to chocolate milk. If you give your sweetie-pie juice, then give him 100 percent fruit juice. In this manner, you will develop a great palate for your little one and it will be easy for him to choose healthy food options.
