A big challenge for many parents is getting the kids to eat healthy. There are so many foods out there that aren’t healthy for kids that are extremely tasty. These kids are enticed by not only the taste of these food’s but also all the advertisement that goes into promoting these unhealthy foods. Kids go to their school and noticed that all their friends are eating unhealthy foods that taste really good at lunch time. They then want to eat these unhealthy foods. I think there’s not enough education about the damages of these unhealthy foods and what they do to your health. If more kids were aware of the benefits healthy foods have and how organic foods taste really food. We would see a lot more kids eating healthy. We also have to look at the parents and their disregard for living what they preach. If the Patents eat unhealthy and try to get their kids to eat healthy they’re not really setting a good example.
One other issue I find is that parents don’t really know what healthy eating
is. They think that their children eat healthy just by eating more fruits and vegetables. It’s not just about eating more fruits and vegetables but the right amounts of protein and fat. The child also has to eat the right types of fats and the right types of protein. If a child a huge amounts of lettuce with not enough protein and fat. Then that would actually be unhealthy for them.
I think that feeding your kids organic foods and eating these organic foods yourself is the best way to help them eat healthier. Kids are actually a lot more in tune with how they feel and will actually avoid unhealthy foods if they notice it doesn’t make them feel good. Of course there’s always going to be that one child who eats very unhealthy and isn’t in tune with how these unhealthy foods are making him feel. I’m just saying generally kids are a lot more in tune with how healthy eating makes them feel better compared to adults.
I think that using healthy sweeteners like honey and organic sugar cane can be a great solution to try and increase the taste of foods. I think that eating organic foods will therefore encourage kids to eat more healthy foods because organic foods taste so much better prepared to conventional foods. I think that if kids are more aware of how unhealthy foods make them feel they’re going to make better choices. It may be that the child didn’t eat organic foods all the time but if the child eats organic food 70 to 80% of the time. That can be enough to make a huge impact in his overall behavior, energy and productivity in school.
