Children learn both the good and bad habits at an early age. Demonstrating healthy eating habits early in a child’s life will equip them with some healthy life skills he/she can carry with them. Teaching Healthy Eating Habits for your child is very important.
Healthy eating habits are more than having a healthy diet or selecting a healthy food. Not only what a child eats, but also how much quantity of food he/she eats, can affect their eating habits which are formed in childhood. Healthy diets also include portion control.
Finally, make daily food or eating preparation fun, learning experiences. Have your child help you for buying groceries. In the produce section of the grocery store, have your child look for fruit and vegetables, a rainbow or finding something in each of the colors of the rainbow. Try a new fruits, vegetables, or some new dishes each month. When appropriate, allow your child to assist you in making meals. Talk about those ingredients you’re putting in the recipe.
If you start teaching healthy eating habits to your child now, they may be likely to practice them on their own as well.
