Every single parent on earth will agree with us that our kids are fond of junk food and if you let them they will eat every rubbish they have at hand. This is why we need to be so attentive when it comes to food. Healthy eating is a must no matter how many kids you have.
If you spend some time on cooking and you are creative enough you can make even the plain porridge the most pleasant breakfast for your kids by adding dried fruits, nuts, cashews, walnuts and stuff like that. I always argue with my kids when I see a bottle of Nutella in their hands while my husband is against arguing with kids. It is the same as you show a yummy piece of barbecue to a person who is starving and not let him eat it. The same thing happens here.
So this is why my husband suggests explaining our kids the side effects of the
yummy bite they take every morning. He starts to tell kids about GMO food as if he is telling a fairy tale, and in the end he showed them some photos of their favorite pets after using GMO foods and compared them with the kids, explaining them that one day the Nutellas and KitKats will make them look that way.
They will wake up one morning and see their head is bigger than normal or they have weird ears. After listening to the bitter truth, my kids never eat Dorritos or Stuff like that. This is a working technique and is worth trying. Do your best for your kids to avoid these foods that are top attractive and top dangerous for their health.
1. Chips, chicken nuggets and even pizza
Yes, right, you got that right. These foods will destroy your kids’ health very soon. The secret here is to limit the amount taken by kids as it is a well-known fact that we – adults prefer to eat healthy food by understanding the harms of the opposite. Kids are on the contrary, they get attracted by these foods and kids consume them more. Make sure to let kids eat this kind of food twice a month and no more. And you can make it as a reward after a week’s healthy food eating. As for the pizza, it is hard for the kids to resist the hot and just baked pizza from a pizzeria delivered to the house. I made pizza making process a fun activity where my kids decide every time who is the chef and who are the assistants and we make pizza together putting those ingredients that the chef decides. We have enjoyed the warm activity so far.
2. Soda Pop, boxes of so called “natural” juices
A liquid killer that gradually kills the organism of a kid by complying chemicals there and making the organism a thesaurus of chemicals that will kill it one day. My kids are crazy about all kinds of fizzy drinks though the dentist told them that it is the same as eating a handful of sugar every day and spoiling the teeth. He said if you do not want to see me and my big syringes often, make sure to avoid these drinks. It helped, my son now prefers plain water to get rid of thirst. I am a role model for him and I make freshly squeezed fruit juice for my whole family every day and we drink it in the garden then my husband takes kids to school and we go to work.
My daughter imitated her friend who always eats so much crackers while watching a movie. And this was like a contagious disease as soon my sons also tasted crackers, liked the artificial flavors given to them and it was hard to replace the crackers with something else.
Soon I bought a box of sunflowers, made the yummiest pop-corn in the microwave and some other snacks and while watching a movie together with the whole family my kids automatically ignored crackers as they saw us – their parents eating pop-corn and sunflower. Kids imitate parents so whatever you do, your kids will do the same.
4. Fruit snacks
A product massively consumed by kids. Every schoolchild has a box of this in his schoolbag as the parents tend to think this is kind of healthy as it is associated with fruits while in reality they do not have a tiny amount of fruit in them. All is artificial flavors and bright colors added up to attract kids. Too much sugar is added to this food and though it has less fat of course it remains unhealthy and worth avoiding.
5. Crunchy cereals
Here you need to be careful not to be deceived with the brand as there are some good and bad ones. Read carefully whatever is written in the box.
