Do you want your kids to eat more fruits and vegetables?  Getting your kids to eat more fruits and vegetables starts by teaching them to love real food and the natural tastes and textures fruits and vegetables provide. You can do this by serving a variety of fruits and veggies in a variety of ways. Check out our resources to help you today:

We also want them to have a healthy relationship with food!   We don’t focus, demonize, or exclude foods or food group at Super Healthy Kids. Instead we celebrate what healthy foods can do for us and how they can make us feel.  

Serving fruits or vegetables in different forms, textures, and temperatures will actually help children develop a mature palate, which is more accepting to a wider variety of new foods.   Training kids tastes and appetites will help them develop a love of real food. Don’t hesitate to offer fruits and veggies fresh, frozen, dried, canned, juiced, pureed, blended, etc!  If you’re still not convinced you can do it, join our membership page, and we’ll give you loads of recipes to give kids everything they need!

We can teach your family how to:

       
       

Studies have shown that kids who eat the recommended amount of fruits and veggies

  • Have a decreased risk for Type 2 diabetes
  • Have Improved immunity
  • Maintain a healthier weight
  • Have better vision and skin
  • Have healthier gums and teeth.
  • Have more energy to play
  • Have a preference for healthier food!
  • Have better brain function.
  • Have better sleep.
  • Plus, live longer!

We love the focus on fruits and veggies for our kids as a way to teach them healthy habits. Not only does it encourage a positive relationship with food by focusing on what they should be eating, without sending negative food messages that often is accompanied by guilt and shame. 

If you want to include all these ideas in your families weekly routine, check out our meal planning site! It’s an easy way to get a variety of fruits and vegetables that will teach your kids not to be picky any longer!


10 Ideals for Better Health

Along with the focus on fruits and veggies, we have comprised 10 Top Pillars of Health we find important! With so much conflicting information, and so many different steps you can take towards a childs good health, we feel like these ten things have the most impact and have been supported by the most science!

  1. Eat less sugar! The average child gets 16% of their total calories from added sugars, a whopping 10 teaspoons per day! Added sugar has been linked to childhood obesity, chronic diseases, behavior problems, and more! Keep this number between 0-5%!
  2. Make half your meal fruits and vegetables! Increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables in all their forms and varieties have been linked to stronger immunity, lower incidences of cancer, lower weight and more! A balanced meal comes naturally when kids consume half their meal fruits and veggies! Kids who eat fruits and veggies at every meal are filling up on high fiber, high nutrient, low calorie foods, in the right portions.
  3. Eat a variety of proteins! Protein is vital to children’s growing brains and bodies! Protein isn’t only obtained from chicken! Seafood, poultry, lean beef, eggs, dairy, beans, peas, nuts, and seeds are all good protein sources and should all be included in a child’s diet.
  4. Include fish once per week. Fish is high in omega 3 fats, like DHA, which is vital for brain development. In addition, omega 3’s are being linked to reduced inflammation in patients with asthma, arthritis, and eczema. Low consumption of Omega 3’s is common in kids and is a risk factor for disease and behavior problems.
  5. Choose whole grains! You can still eat whole grains!  But don’t let this be a reason to exclusively feed your kids bread 7-11 times per day.  Instead, there are delicious alternatives that are much better for them. Brown rice, millet, barley, wild rice, bulgur, etc.
  6. Stick to 4 meals per day! Kids who are allowed to graze on food all day, do not have the appetite or desire to try new foods. It’s OK for children to be hungry, and even encouraged! When mealtime comes, they will be less picky and healthy food will actually taste better.
  7. Limit sodium. Kids should eat less than 1500mg of sodium per day, a little more than 1/2 teaspoon. Too much sodium puts children at risk for high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, and even kidney disease. Being vigilant about checking labels and avoid adding salt where possible, in favor of herbs and spices is an easy way to stay below the recommendation.
  8. Limit processed foods. Processed foods are any foods you find that are pre-made, packaged, and often require chemicals, food dyes, preservatives, added fats, and added sugars just to be able to keep it on the store shelves without getting spoiled. Children who eat and have access to processed foods eat less fruits and vegetables and develop eating habits that lead to obesity and poor health. Making your food from scratch, planning your meals, shopping the perimeter of the store, and growing your own foods are easy ways to eliminate the need for processed foods.
  9. Drink Water! Water is vital for children. The major source for added sugar for children is sugar sweetened beverages. Sugar sweetened beverages have been blamed for many of the health problems plaguing children today, including childhood obesity. These beverages also replace foods that have nutrients and fiber, which children need to grow.
  10. Sleep well and play hard! When kids spend their day playing outside, rather than in front of a screen, they sleep better, they have less behavior problems, they are happier and even have better self image.

We believe that as you teach these things to your children, implement them into daily living, and let it be a part of your life, your kids will be healthier, happier, and they will learn the habits necessary for lifetime wellness!

J’ai lu qq part que pour re-liquéfier le miel qui a durci, on fait faire un cycle complet au pot de miel (en verre selon moi) au lave-vaisselle. Je l’ai essayé et le miel est redevenu tout clair. Dans un pot en plastique je ne sais pas si ça marcherait ou si le le pot de tordrait. Quel dégât ce serait alors !! Le miel est le seul aliment qui dure toujours sans se détériorer, il peut durer des milliers d’années (Egyptiens). Je ne sais pas si c’est pareil pour le sirop d’érable.
