Feeding your kids healthy food can be a challenge, but so rewarding! Amy and Natalie are both nutrition educators who want to make it easier to feed your kids better, in less time, and with less complaint! We believe focusing on fruits and vegetables is key. Amy and Natalie live in Utah with their families. The food philosophy for Super Healthy Kids is to make fruits and vegetables simple, fun and delicious!
For kids to develop healthy habits, it's important for them to learn to love a variety of fruits and vegetables, in a variety of ways. 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. Don't hesitate to offer fruits and veggies fresh, frozen, dried, canned, juiced, pureed, blended, etc! Parents should be in the business of training their kids tastes and appetites for real food, rather than a love for a specific vegetable.
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.
