5 Tips for Healthy Meals for Kids

 

Most moms would want a stress free life, who wouldn’t?

Better nutrition for the kids or children.

5 Tips for Healthy Meals for Kids

1# Learn to be Kid-friendly

 

Lighten the mood. Change the approach.

Simply put, get in the child’s mind.

Crafting healthy meals for fussy kids are never easy. But this should not stop you from dishing out creative ways to make them view health meals as bland or lifeless, let alone – utter hard work to stomach (pun intended).

Children love colours, right? Well, make meals using colourful veggies. Visuals, the works. Bright and eye-catching meals are definitely exciting!

#2 Have fun with shapes

 

Call me crazy, but it should work!

Kids love some playtime element in their world so why take advantage of it?

I know, I know, this is going to be hard work. But your children are the best gifts in the world, so why not do the ‘extra’ mile?

One practical way to do this is to get a sort of made for kids food slicer which comes in little components of different shapes and colours, the kind of thing that you use to make letters for cakes and cookies. There is no reason why you can’t use this with vegetables as well – your mind is the only limit to what you can do (serious? smile please).

Here is one sample item that I found online called farm animal dough cutters, this is from Amazon in case you want to have a look at it

There you go, few steps closer to easy, healthy meals for kids!

Proud parent, aren’t you?

#3 Have them around in the kitchen when you are cooking

 

This might seem traditional and overly suggested but it could work really well. After all, when children feel that they are involved in the process, they retain information much more, as well as feel more ‘involved’ and valued in such strategy.

Various things you can do this:

Tell them that they can play assistant chefs for the day. Why not? Kids hate boring stuff, so why not do some kiddie role plays?

In this process they will learn to view cooking, and food, as something ‘good’ of an experience. I also think that once kids see the amount of work mom or dad has to go through to magic those delicious meals, then they can learn to appreciate more. Makes sense, doesn’t it?

#4 Have some Education Time

 

This is not lecture time, tell the kids.

Try to find some kiddie magazines and books with large and colourful illustrations, strong visuals on foods or dishes, even if it’s about cakes.

When you flip through the pages, make a storytelling kind of session with your kids, dont forget to involve them too via Q and A. You could ask them what the photo is about, and then maybe ask them about the nutrients or so, and what the benefits are.

These are interactive and quality time activities for you and the children. No doubt, the benefits are immense as well, both in their knowledge and the way they view health meals.

#5 Re-invent the Meals

Variety and new approaches to things might be the key to getting children to give healthy meals a chance.

Concrete example would be substituting unhealthy ingredients with good ones. Take for example: Spaghetti Bolognese

Instead of using the usual pasta, why not go for veggie spirals? These are veggies that are shaped like spirals in order to appear like spaghetti shapes. Zucchini would be a great vegetable for this.

With the pasta sauce, if you want to avoid allergies, ditch the tomato sauce! Try to make a home version of it: use just olive oild, sea salt, a bit of pepper, a bit paprika to give some colour to the dish, and maybe a dash of honey and lemon juice.

(I would stay away from the usual pasta sauces in jars as they can containt loads of additives, but if you can find a very good gluten free version online, give them a try, although tomatoes per se are a big allergen)

Another dish that you could try to re-invent would be pancakes for snack times. So with this, try to use healthy flours like gluten free flour or sweet potato flour, even coconut ones. Give up dairy milk for the mix, instead use the coconut milk for this. Add in natural honey to sweeten, use the raw and unpasteurised one so the nutrients are still intact.

How to Cure Depression and  Anxiety Naturally

How to Cure Depression and Anxiety Naturally

How to cure depression and anxiety naturally

 

For me the our biggest enemy is our MIND. In my experience, it makes sense to start with our mental boundaries, the thing we have access to – the most.

When we attend to our mind, we should experience an inner calm through time, or instantly – depends how open you are to inner work. Some people are very in touch with their inner selves, while some will be quite new to this.

This is the year 2016, a year where we can expect big changes in terms of how people will look at their lives. Most will begin to question deep things about themselves.

This can be seen through a possible example of someone who is used to the busy hustle bustle of  a metropolitan kind of working life where rushed coffee and newspapers in hand are the norm.

TOPP

But an interesting twist to this, one day, that one person could wake up and start to question his or her very existence, what am I here for? Is this there is to life? Am I just another corporate person who lives for the weekend of pub nightouts, eating at restaurants, clubbing and all the mundane stuff of modern fast life?

Then Monday comes. History will keep on repeating itself. Until one day, life knocks on you. Life shows you some lessons.

WIRE

Making time for the SELF seems not so serious, but for me? This is one step that is making the difference in my personal trials and health issues.

I am not perfect. I am a work in progress.

 

Buteyko Breathing Method

This method was begun as far back as in the early 1950s by a Russian medical doctor named Konstantin P. Buteyko. He discovered that over-breathing or hyperventilation is a major contributing factor to, and quite possibly a cause for many health problems.

This method is by far, very impressive, in my own opinion. This approach takes a lot of training if you were to become a practitioner in this field. There is a substantial investment into this, and it just shows how promising the method is. If I had the money now, I would do this training without even thinking for one second.

THETA

According to the website,  Butekyo Breathing method has been showing great results in healing ashtma, COPD, even in a case of adenoids not needing surgery. To read more about this, click here.

Yoga

Yoga is a very strong player in the health and wellness world. Who does not know yoga?

Yoga, according to recent testimonies from some patients, according to my online reading and research, has been successful at treating chronic diseases. One example, a very busy executive has been complaining of back pain to such point to that he could no longer run his business due to the extreme pain in his lower back, where all medical avenues failed – he tried yoga. Yoga was the only method that cured him of his ailment.

(this case was a documentary from the health site FMTV)

Fortunately, the practice of yoga is now within easy reach – no need for complicated onsite classes – you can now do it right at home or at work (given you have a relaxation lounge).

One very good site that offers superior yoga on the go is www.YogaDownload.com

A very extensive resource for those who are looking to make a big difference in their lives in terms of body and mind healing in order to better function at work, personal lives, inner healing, de-stressing, peace of mind and overall general well-being.

To add, for me Yoga is very, very good for the body. Because?

Yoga lets you quiet the chatter in your mind. In doing this method, you let your mind focus only on one thing at that given time – everything else is out of the way. Your body and your mind is at one, and this is where healing occurs. When the mind is soothed, when your stress is temporarily on hold, your body is at its most conducive state to allow healing – be it producing natural healing hormones from your brain which then your body can assimilate to, from tissues down to your very cellular level.
