Thank you to Wendy Dessler for this guest post on tips for healthy kids.
We all want healthy, well-balanced children. We want them to enjoy physical activity and we want to provide them with foods to fuel their bodies and minds.
Unfortunately, we live in an instant world where snacks are loaded with sugars, fats, and just enough nutritional value to earn a government okay to label them healthy.
Children develop their taste from the foods we give them. They are not mature enough to decide what is good and what is not. Even adults have problems in this area.
Further, how we present something to them can build excitement or dread. This is true with their lifestyles, diets, and special treats.
