How to Get Kids to Eat Healthy

BROUGHT TO YOU BY Milk Means More

Do your kids only eat two food groups – chicken nuggets and pizza? You’re not alone! Kids can be picky eaters with limited palates that lean toward junk food. So how do you get your kids to eat a healthier, more diverse diet? It starts with clearing through the confusion and getting a better understanding of what kids should eat. Next, you can’t skimp on flavor. Kids (and adults for that matter) should enjoy what they are eating. And a healthy diet isn’t about depriving kids of foods they love, but finding a balance, so they get the nutrition they need. Metro Parent’s How to Get Kids to Eat Healthy, sponsored by Milk Means More, offers tips to teach your kids healthy eating habits. Plus, get kid-friendly recipes for snacks, desserts and more. Check back often to get more kids healthy eating tips and recipes.
