Tip #3 You make the ‘healthy rules’
As parents and carers, we can help to ensure our children achieve an optimum level of health – through good eating habits.
Children will eventually get used to most food you give them, particularly if you explain to them why they are good for them and if they see you eat them daily. You cannot control what they eat outside the home, but you can make sure what you give them is part of your ‘healthy rules’.
Your growing children’s bodies crave nourishing, real food, not ‘empty’ foods full of sugar, salt, toxic fats and artificial ingredients that will put pressure on their organs and health.
If your child doesn’t eat much, make every mouthful you give them count! If your child eats a lot and has weight issues, they probably are eating too much ‘empty food’ and their body is actually craving real, nourishing foods.
Remember: you make the rules.
