Can You Add More Nutrition Into the Foods Your Picky Child Eats?

Posted on 5/23/2018 by Fariba Mutschler
Picky Child Great Grins for KIDS - Oregon City OR 97045Adding better nutritional routines is something that so many parents want to do. However, not all kids like to try new foods or refuse to eat some of the foods put in front of them. Having a picky eater is more common than you would think.

Sneaking in a little extra nutrition without them knowing is something that can be done.

Not only is this good for their overall health and well-being, but it is also essential when it comes to their oral health and having stronger teeth.

Sneaking Extra Nutrients In Those Meals

Chickpeas, white beans and lentils can easily be chopped up and ground down to be added into just about anything from smoothies to brownies.

You can add them and they will just mimic the flavors of what they're added in with. The best part is that they're packed with vitamins and minerals that the child is likely missing out on.

Hemp seeds are another great source of vitamins and nutrients. Packed with fiber, healthy fats and protein, these seeds are a must when you sprinkle them on top of anything. Instead of saying they're seeds, let them know they're eating special sprinkles. This can be a fun way for the child to get that extra boost of nutrients that they need.

Be creative when it comes to foods that children love. How about making some sweet potato french fries that are topped with cinnamon and butter? These are a favorite for adults and healthy for you! This makes them extra special when it comes to having something kids will eat but also enjoy.

Being able to provide a well-rounded meal is always a good thing, even if your child is picky. By using these tips and tricks, you can ensure that your child still gets the nutrients that they need without having to worry about their eating habits.
