Ways to get Kids to Eat Healthy Foods, Part 5

I saw this helpful hint in a Dr. Sears newsletter and thought it was a great idea.

Keep “Grow Foods” In Sight

Put the things that you want your family to eat in plain sight. Keep “Grow Foods” like veggies, fruits, beans, whole grain breads, nuts, and olives either right out on the kitchen counter or right in front of the fridge or pantry shelves for easy access. The more you and your family see these good food choices the more likely they are to get consumed. I often place a small bowl of raw nuts in my husband’s office for him to nibble on throughout the day. On the other hand, keep special treats way in the back of the refrigerator or pantry, or on a high shelf where it won’t be grabbed by impulse. This also helps keep mom and dad reaching for “grow foods”.
