What to hear these words
from the young people in your house? Here are tips to help make that a
reality. Christy will share easy recipes that taste great and are
perfect for kids to help prepare.
Tips for Trying New Foods:
1.) Be a role model. Make vegetables and fruits a part of every meal. Let them see you eat and enjoy a variety of produce.
2.) A taste is just a taste. Let your child decide how much to try. Even a smell or a lick can be progress for some!
3.) If at first you don’t succeed…try, try again. Tastes and interests can change in a day, a week or more. Keep offering.
4.) You can lead them to a new food, but you can’t make them eat it. Keep meal time positive.
5.) Involve kids in the preparation. Children are more likely to try a food they have helped prepare.
