Diana K. Rice is a registered dietitian and has a background in teaching children’s nutrition lessons. She recently realized that raising a child to be a healthy eater starts long before sitting down at the dinner table. She wrote a simple and effective article earlier this month about starting your child down the healthy path.
Diana understands it can be difficult for children to go for healthy food. The taste or appearance may be unfamiliar and unwelcome, or they might just be in a fantastically stubborn mood.
“The best line of defense against these challenges is to get your children involved in meal planning and preparation. This turns healthy eating into a fun family activity and provides a sense of autonomy that’s been shown to help children learn to enjoy eating healthy foods for life.”
She lays out a simple that involves planning and eating the meal together, and of course reinforces repittion and keeping at it.
