JUICING FOR HEALTH



 

February 5, 2010 on 12:11 am

So you want your kids to eat healthier—you’re not alone. Many parents watch their kids ingest all kinds of unbalanced diets full of preservatives and calories. Good news: Mitzi Dulan, RD, who blogs at nutritionexpert.com offers some good ideas to help us get our kids to eat better.

She starts by suggesting that parents get their kids involved in the making of meals. Of course this is a good idea, they get a sense of ownership in what they eat. To add to this budding ownership, she writes that parents should ask their children for their opinions about what types of foods to add to the diet. She states, “Offer kids a choice between two or three foods but avoid asking, “What would you like for dinner?”  For example, you can let your child decide between apples or oranges or broccoli or cauliflower.  When children participate in the planning and preparation of the meal they will be more likely to consume it.”

Yes choices are good. And finally, Ms. Dulan emphasizes that we make out excitement about the food we eat contagious. Get your kids excited about making and eating food that is good for them. We at Fresh Start Juicers agree wholeheartedly. Making our diets our own and exciting engenders a healthy lifestyle that not only keeps us coming back to a healthy eating but, perhaps, also moves us into other healthy activities as well.
