Many parents agree that it is hard to deny their child of food. They feel guilty, or feel like it will hurt their child if they manage their portions and choices.
There’s no question that fruits are good for your health. Next time your sweet tooth starts getting you craving sugars, reach for the natural sugars found in strawberries, kiwis, oranges, apples, and other delicious fruits.
Planning meals with children in the house is not as easy as making a shopping list and compiling coupons. In fact, it can be very difficult to strike the balance between providing meal versatility, nutrition and foods that the kids will actually eat.
If all else fails, try subterfuge. With this tactic, you may need that blender. Add pureed vegetables to sauces, soups, hamburgers or meatloaf. I had success by calling a fruit shake “pudding”. You can also take a page out of my mother‘s book. She snuck peas and carrots into our chocolate shakes and my sister and I were none the wiser.
