Are you having trouble finding healthy food ideas for you and your children? Let’s make healthy food fun! Being in a good mood during mealtime can make or break whether a kid is willing to try a new food or not. Introducing and presenting foods in intriguing way can be important. Putting on a smile can as well! That’s why spicing up meals and snacks in new ways can excite your child and interest them in eating nutritious options. We want our children to have a happy, healthy future. Sadly, so many of them are already struggling with ADHD, eczema, constipation, asthma, autism, etc. We need to continue to focus on what we CAN do to heal and nourish the future of our world.
Food can be healing. Don’t forget that. We as parents are role models. Our kids watch what we eat, how we react to foods, and our moods when we eat. Let’s focus on showing them how healthy food can taste good, how we are happy when we eat it, and let’s empower our kids with the tools to grow up with strong immune systems & happy tummies 😃
Here are 10 items and ideas you should consider trying with your family:
1. Slim Sticks
Carry veggie sticks, nuts/seeds, homemade popsicles and more in these reusable “sticks”.
2. Lunchable Ideas
Plenty of real food ideas for kids’ lunches!
3. On the Go Cups
These would be great for plain yogurt, berries, & a sprinkle of trail mix or granola!
Avoid the dyes and sugar in packaged jello and make your own with gelatin powder and fruit juice!
5. Lego Jello Molds
What a perfect companion to your new homemade jello! My son gets a kick out of using these Lego jello molds. Your kids might enjoy them too!
6. Upgraded Lunch Boxes
I love the stainless steel options out these days! We have the Planet Box, but this Eco Lunchbox is another handy option!
7. Sandwich Cutters
We don’t have any crust haters in this household, but I could see how these cutters could be quite popular! I’ve heard of many people saving the crust for breadcrumbs or breakfast casseroles…so shove them in a freezer bag for a casserole-kind-of-day.
8. Colorful Decor…Reusable Fruit Picks!
Hold wraps together, stick them in fruit bites, use them for cheese & meat stacks
9. Reusable Food Pouches
I’m all about reusable items to minimize waste. These would be handy for smoothies, applesauce, yogurt and more!
