If you want to ensure balanced nutrition in your child’s diet and inculcate healthy eating habits in them, you will have to start at the root of the problem. Yes, this being the supply chain that only parents can control. You already know that you are the one to decide which foods enter your home and which ones don’t yet you don’t realize the importance of this one privilege that you have. Remember, if you start stocking foods like spinach, green peas, broccoli and carrots and beans and sprouts from the beginning and give them nothing but healthy options to munch upon, they will never fall prey to bad eating habits. It is not saying that you should keep them away from the delicious cakes, pizzas and burgers and cakes and muffins. You can create a balance between the two by treating them with these delicacies every now and then.
Balance is the key and you will have to strive to maintain it. Another major point of concern for many parents who find it difficult to cultivate intelligent eating habits in their children is the sweet villain. Yes, sugar is a primary culprit here. Do keep in mind that the occasional desserts and sweets are fine, but don't let it replace your main course. Keep the dessert as a reward for finishing the plate of veggies that you just kept on the table. In the end you will have to be a role model to them. Start eating healthy yourself and you will notice how your kids follow you.
