Have mommies facing these situations??……”I don’t like the greenish on my plate!”; “can i have the candies???”; “I wanna ice-cream! I wanna ice-cream!” ……..and you will keep on yelling NO to this, NO to that!

Babies & toddlers can be very fussy eaters. Promote your child with the healthy picks by supplying the basic components of our diet – carbohydrates, protein and fat. Even myself hardly to get my kids having all those complete diet but ensure they get at least two servings of the supplement daily. These roles vary from boosting energy and brain power to preventing illness and even repairing damages. In any diet, whether child or adult should get eating lots of fruits and vegetables. So here are some of the tips to train your child taste buds!

1. Fruits & Vegetables (Vitamins, minerals & dietary-fiber)

– Not all the toddlers would have the greenish on their snack plate. Parents plays role to create creative ways to decorate their meals! And what I usually do is filling the scramble eggs with grated carrots for a sandwich. Or just add-in their scones with dried mix fruits and spread with blended cheesy spinach! And even you can serve them well with fresh mix vege & fruits with Malaysian garnish….

– Scones spread with blended spinach! Really -really a mouth watering meals of the day!

-hmmmm……so yummy!! Bright colors would perhaps attract the kids to eat!

2. Whole Grains (Fibre & Vitamin E)

– Whole grains are typically fortified with folic acid, Vit.B, D, Iron, zinc and sometimes calcium too. Oats are one of the most familiar hot cereals for kids and nutritious grain for the brain. Take note that oats provide excellent energy or fuel for the brain that kids need first thing in and fed all morning at school. Simple cereals to give with sliced banana for breakfast…

3. Nuts and seeds (Good fats, fiber, protein, Omega3 & 6 oils, minerals – magnesium & potassium)

– Luckily I didn’t have any problem in this serving… kids are nuts hunger! Since I am a baker, there always packed of variety nuts in my keepers for them.  According to an Australian nutritionist, a handful of almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds or walnuts are ideal super food as a mid-morning snack. Change their habits of taking junk-food with any of these combination ………Or just baked them cuppies like this!

4. Dairy (Rich in calcium)

– Rich in calcium is a key ingredient for strong bones and teeth, healthy heart and nervous system. Certain dairy product such as yogurt and milk also contain protein, Vit.A, B12, riboflavin and magnesium. Well, fed your kids well enough with this which can help promote their inner health.

All is yours to change their habits! Good luck!
