An Easy Way to Help Kids Eat Better

Many of our nutrition members and clients have children and once they learn how to stabilize their own blood sugar, they are eager to teach their families how to do the same.  The challenge with children is they don’t have the same tastes as adults or the same amount of disclipine (and they shouldn’t, after all they’re children!).  One of our clients who has a fussy family decided to invent a “game” in hopes to get her young children to recognize and aim for balanced meals.  As she and her husband make plates for their kids at dinner time, they actually ask their kids questions like, which food on the plate has protein?  Their kids have a fun competition with each other trying to get the answer right.  This type of learning is effective because it’s repetitive and engaging, and this particular family swears by it!
