The following tips are based on the experiences of many mothers, as most children tend to refuse to eat fruits and vegetables, as well as other edibles. With some imagination and perseverance, you can gradually manage to make eating time a fun experience for your children.
Top Healthy Foods That Kids Actually Like to Eat
Make a vegetable broth, strain, and add pasta letters (better if it is full or fortified pasta). Instead of letters, you can also use pasta that is in form of other fun shapes, such as wheels, stars, or faces.
Pasta with Margarine
A lot of children love any kind of boiled pasta with a bit of margarine (no trans fats). You can also opt to add a bit of olive oil (not fried).
Sticky Thai Rice
This edible is also called sweet rice or glutinous rice. It has the peculiarity that when you cook it, it becomes very sticky and can be eaten by hand; therefore, children love it. Despite its name, it does not contain gluten. It can be served alone or with coconut milk and/or pieces of mango.
After toasting the bread, you can opt to cut into fun shapes with the help of cookies molders, and then smeared peanut butter.
Fruits and Vegetables, Cherry tomatoes
Due to their size, children like to eat them.
Blackberries and Strawberries
They are tasty and have a nice color combination that children like.
Many children love eating and looking at broccoli, as it looks like a tree.
Meat, Poultry, Fish, Legumes, and Nuts
If your child is older than two years, you can give him/her a ⅓ cup of peanuts, walnuts, or sunflower seeds.
Only if the child is old enough to not swallow the bone, you can go ahead and feed him/her chicken wings, as they can eat them with their fingers.
Form tiny balls with minced meat and then cook them in the oven.
Dairy Products, Nesquik milk
If your child does not like plain milk, you can give it to him/her with Nesquik.
Yogurt provides many benefits to children, thanks to the live and active bacteria it contains. It also has many nutrients needed for development of a child, such as calcium, vitamins, minerals and proteins. Children like yogurt in liquid form because they can intake it with straw, and it comes in different delicious flavors.
Following the previously mentioned tips will definitely make breakfast, lunch, and dinner time a great experience for your child!
