Your Child’s Diet
Instilling healthy eating habits for children is much easier when you start from the beginning rather than making a drastic change in your child’s diet after they’ve been used to not-so-healthy foods.
But don’t lose hope if you’re starting your child on a new healthy eating regimen.
First of all, you MUST be aware of what substances are going into your child’s body. Help them understand what is good or not good for them to eat and drink, and explain to them why this is the case.
Start at birth
Most physicians agree that breast milk is best for babies because it passes on colostrum and antibodies from the mother.
However, once a child has moved onto solid foods, how do you continue to instill healthy eating habits?
Eating healthy food begins with education
Education about diet is important. Help children learn about things like the the benefits of eating organic vs. non-organic or about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered ingredients. Teach them in ways that they can comprehend.
