SPUD.CA Shares Healthy Eating Tips for the Family
Start the New Year with a few simple tips from Sustainable Produce Urban Delivery (SPUD) to make sure you and your family eat right and make healthy choices.
1. Family Meals
Take time to have a regular family meal. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with one another and studies show that kids who take part in regular family meals are more likely to eat fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
2. Start them Young
Food preferences are developed early so offer a variety at a young age and gradually introduce new foods. Try offering a few bites from your plate and for older kids, ask them to try one bite and then decide.
3. Act as an Ambassador
Monkey see, monkey do. If you want your kids to make healthy choices, they need a role model so be a healthy eating ambassador at home by making nutritious choices when cooking meals and picking snacks.
4. Milk or Water
Provide the option of milk or water as drinks to accompany meals instead of a sugary alternative.
