Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Little Tiny Chefs
Let the little ones cook with you! Without having helped prepare veggies, it's less likely that your tyke will try the delicious veggies on their plate. Studies have shown that getting kids cooking makes them more open to eating healthful foods (read: fruits and vegetables). With picky eating peaking between the ages of 2 and 6, letting the kids in your life interact with food in a meaningful way may make dinner smooth sailing. Both the Mayo Clinic and the American Heart Association suggest that getting kids involved with picking out produce and food prep can reduce picky eating. Share your success stories with us on Facebook!
