Eat as a Family

Eat as a Family

As I mentioned earlier, kids do follow elders. Good healthy habits are for entire family. If you have unhealthy life style or not have a specific time for having food or to do exercise then it is the time to fix it. Have a specific time for food and exercise in your daily activities.

You and your kids should have full of nutrients meals as well some healthy snacks. Healthy snacks involves yogurt, fruits, Smoothies and whole grain breads. This will keep your kids active as these foods are not too heavy. You can also teach your kids about different nutrients and which food are good for them.

Try to have at least one meal as a family together. Your kids will learn family values and you will have some time with you kids too. You can explain them about different healthy foods and why it is important for our body to have all those full healthy food.

Do Not Use Food as Reward For Your Kids

Never ever ever use food as a reward for your kids. Kids are smart. They notice every single thing and tend to apply them in their own way. If you ever use food as a reward, your kids will get is and then will use it as a tool for their sacks. For example they can use it just to do their homework and will tell you "Mom, will I get the ice cream if I finish my homework?" This sounds working at first but believe me it is not a good practice.

Rewards for kids should be something like field trip or getting them some sports equipment they demanding for. It will encourage them and they can use the reward in a positive way.
