Tips to develop healthy food eating habits there by building nutrition in kids

Here are some simple healthy food eating habits you can practice one by one or all at once.

  • Keep more healthy foods at your home and work. This includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. It is better to add healthy food to your diet rather than taking unhealthy food away. This will also guide your family to choose healthy foods.
  • Eat at least one family meal together. Children imitate what they see. When you sit with your kid and eat together, they get to see what you eat and how you eat. They imitate the same. Example eating vegetable hey will not hey be such a difficult task for a kid when they see the whole family enjoy and eat it.
  • Do not rush eating meals. It is not only puts the kid into strain stress and pressure but also compromises on the intake the kid has.
  • Teach children to identify when they are hungry and when they are full. And when it is the right time to stop eating. This will help them to avoid overeating. Which is the primary cause for many obesity and health related issues.
  • One of the main and proven technique is to eat slowly so that the brain can register when the tummy is full and signal the child to stop eating. They say it takes around 15 minutes for the brain to register that the stomach has had enough.
  • Avoid the habit of eating sitting in front of a television or watching something on a laptop or a tab. while this might appear beneficial since the kid will remain quiet. If the kid’s brain is engaged and engrossed in other activity that it will not register what the kid is eating or how much. This will create a very unhealthy habits in the kid in the long run and take away valuable time the kid can otherwise spend with family.

Few more tips..

  • Do not delay your meals. Have a specific time for them. Delaying will make you hungrier and thus, you will tend to eat more than what is required. Also, when you eat on time your body clock gets adjusted to the time and they will secrete the digestive juices needed to observe all the nutrients at the right time. Plus, kids some more receptive to eat when they are hungry than when they are not. So, there will be less resistance from your kid and low drama.
  • Encourage kids to drink water. Have water at reach when kids sit for food. Teach them to choose water when they have the urge to have drinks with high sugars.
