We all know the rules – avoid junk food, eat healthy, say no to fizzy drinks and finish your veggies. But do kids really listen? Who says eating right needs to be followed by the book! Parents stress and worry about their children’s ‘bad’ eating habits day and night, just to find their child pigging out on that packet of chips you thought you managed to hide. Instead of setting rules for what he/she can or cannot eat (and we all know how much children LOVE rules) why not provide them with options (you could even trick them into believing its totally unhealthy) they’ll gobble up happily.
SAY YES TO JUNK FOOD:
There is no parent who could eat healthy all the time, so how can you expect your kids to do the same? If they want chocolate, melt some rich chocolate in milk and serve it to them as hot chocolate. When your child demands choco chip cookies, try making them at home with healthier alternatives like atta instead of maida and olive oil instead of butter. And sometimes just give your kids a break, when they ask for a packet of chips or some silly over priced chocolate, just let them have it!
