The Thing that Can Help Kids Enjoy Food More

Download PDF


Give your child a chance to experience their food and allow their taste buds to savor the colors of the rainbow. As early as preschool, kids are rushed at meal time, not allowing them adequate time to eat real foods that take time to chew and digest.

Let’s look at many of the processed foods that invade your child’s lunch box: Lunchables, chips, white bread or white crackers, yogurt tubes, artificial cheese- many of these you could consider practically pre-digested!  They may be ground-up, mashed or have added fillers, sugar, stabilizers and salt giving them the ability to instantly melt in your stomach.

These foods may come with a low price tag in the store but the bargain buck stops there.  You can cash in any savings with the costs attached to future heart burn, joint problems, clogged arteries, or elevated blood sugar to name a few.

Starting today, step on the breaks and slow down. Take the time to sit with your children and talk while sharing a meal. Enjoy and taste all the flavors nature brings to the table.

    I find very important that my kids have their breakfast with healty foods taking time to eat properly and I give them lunches with good quality food nutrients to bring to school because unfortunately the schools don`t always offer healty choices.
    I try to explain to them way we should eat certain foods that looks real and not so much of the luchable type of snacks that don`t give anyting else that health problems in their future life.
