Why are kids so difficult to feed nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables? This is a common problem that a parent is faced with. Kids really love junk foods, cereals, candies, ice cream, and the like because of its packaging, presentation, and how it is advertised especially on the television and magazines. Since prohibiting your child to sit in front of the TV is impossible, you have to exert some effort so the boring healthy meal in his eyes will turn into something yummy and enjoyable. You can come up with your own healthy eating games for kids.
Healthy eating games for kids will be a big help to improve the food choice of your child. No one knows him better than you do. So make this fact your advantage. Bring out the child in you and be creative. Put yourself in his shoes. You can research for some ideas and infuse it with yours to make it more personal and effective.
For example, instead of tossing all the greens in his plate, arrange it in a way that it resembles his favorite cartoon character. You can also make a landscape out of it and come up with an exciting story while feeding him. Another healthy eating game for kids idea is to use hand puppets. Let the puppet explain how a certain vegetable or fruit is good for him as compared to the bag of chips or fried chicken that he is so fond of. Make it short, easy to understand, and fun. Another is you can make some advertisement for every healthy food that he does not like eating. He can also be a part of the role play to make it more exciting.
Get your child's attention and interest in this activity by doing it at the proper time. Do not do it when he is tired or playing because you will only lose your patience and waste your effort. The important thing is, you should also have fun when designing and playing healthy eating games for kids.
