(HealthDay News) — Many children don’t like fruit and veggies, but that shouldn’t stop kids from eating healthy.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends:
- Let your child go to the grocery store and shop for produce with you. The child should choose fruit and veggies that look appealing.
- Create fun challenges while shopping. Have your child pick out produce of different colors.
- Give young children cookbooks and let them look through pictures to choose a meal that looks good. Older children can help with cooking and preparation.
- Talk to your child about how he or she wants to prepare the produce bought at the store.
- Let your child help as much as possible, from rinsing produce to tearing lettuce and cooking food.
