Teaching Kids About Eating Right

Many of you know that one of the hats I wear is an advisory board member for Produce for Kids, an awesome organization dedicated to healthy kids and families.  One of my fellow board members recently wrote some guidelines about teaching even our youngest kids about healthy eating.  As obesity rises among kids (and adults!) this seems like a more important lesson than ever.  But it can be tricky: We don’t want to deprive our kids or set up an unhealthy relationship with food.  But ignoring the issue, or allowing them to indulge in all of their junk food fantasies doesn’t seem right either.  Estella Schnelle of the Weekly Bite provides some great tips for navigating these treacherous waters.

Check out her tips below:

I am so lucky to be involved with Produce for Kids – a wonderful organization that promotes healthy eating for kids and families. If you haven’t seen their site, check it out! There are lots of easy, healthy recipes and other information that is super useful for busy families.

This month they will be holding a Twitter Party on March 14th.  The party will be hosted by blogger, mom and registered dietician Estela Schnelle – author of The Weekly Bite and fellow Parents on Produce Board Member.  The party is sponsored by Earthbound Farm.  Check it out!
