And not only that, but you’re worried about them too. Are they eating enough? Are they getting the nutrients they need? And, it can be stressful whenever you’re not at home. Even if you’ve tried a whole host of things, these three things could really help.
Cook With Them
To start with, cook with them. Get them involved. Maybe they are so scared because they don’t know what it is. But cooking can be fun. And kids are often more likely to eat something that they have made themselves or that they feel better about what they are going to try.
Grow Your Own
The next thing that you might want to do, is think about growing your own vegetables. Growing your own can be a lot of fun. And kids love it. Plus, when they are growing their own fun, they can be more invested in cooking with it all and eating it.
Sometimes, you just need to understand why. Knowing why they don’t like something or want to eat it can help. It could be that they are allergic. However, it’s not always that easy for you to understand food allergies, what causes them, or what the symptoms are. So, you may find that the information in the infographic below is really useful for you.
