Are your little ones fussy eaters? If so, there’s no need to worry any more. Organix have recently launched their new campaign, #LoveGoodFood, to help your tot really appreciate and enjoy their fruit and veg.
Setting diet preferences in the early years of your baby’s life is vital if you want to avoid having a fussy eater in the family, and this is a plan to help you out.
You can take your toddler along to fun workshops encouraging children to love healthy food more, run by children’s food expert, Lucy Thomas, who is recommended for her methods by experts from Great Ormond Street Hospital. Your baby is bound to enjoy these exciting sessions, which are your sure-fire solution to avoiding bad eating habits later on in your child’s life.
Encouraging your child to eat healthily during the early years means that this nutritious diet will stay with them for the rest of their life. Child obesity is rapidly increasing in the UK, and helping your baby to understand the importance of fruit and veg at an early age can help to decrease this number. Your child is most impressionable during the toddler years, and influencing them now can establish a lifelong love of food.
You could even read the book, Little Book of Good Food – Toddlers & Families, packed with advice and tips for you to help provide a fun and healthy diet as they continue their exciting adventure with food during the early years and later on. Get your child excited about food and help them to learn about the importance of a balanced diet in a fun way.
Their early experiences with food will affect their long term growth and development, as well as the creation of healthy food habits. You can download a free copy at organix.com/lovegoodfood. With the help of these tricks and tips, you can easily help your child to have a balanced and happy diet, and encourage a much wider interest in food.
Let your child feel the different textures of foods, provide them with oppurtunities to handle fruit and veg and even get a little messy – let them squash foods so they feel comfortable handling them. All of these things will encourage healthy eating in your child, and both you and your tot will benefit greatly in the future. You can even show your child short videos so they can learn about food in a fun and interactive way.
The possibilities are endless. Your baby will be on the road to a happy and healthy diet in no time. Persuading your child to eat healthily at an early age will set them up for a happy life, and will be a big help to you at mealtimes!
