Solution For Children Who Do Not Like Fruit, Vegetables, and Milk
What will you if your child refuse to eat food which they actually need? Most of you probably will probably keep trying to introduce the food to them. But if this is the only technique used, the results are not always effective.
Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, identify that both kids and adults need to get more calcium, vitamin D, potassium, and fiber. You can get these nutrients in milk, fruits, vegetables, and grains-foods that are usually avoided by children.
According to Eating Well, here are some solutions to help the little one who are ‘picky eaters’ to get food and nutrients they need.
Do Not like fruits
The solution is that you should out the fruits in milkshakes. Most fruits give sufficient amount of potassium and vitamin C, while a smoothie made from fruit is a perfect way to hide the fruit.
Most children feel attracted drink through a straw. Smoothies are often loaded with lots of added sugar, so for a healthier menu, make one yourself at home.
Children do not like to eat broccoli (and other vegetables)
The solution is to cover it with cheese. Add cheese on top of vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower, or cabbage help “kill” a sense of taste which makes children reluctant to eat it. Indeed, cheese generally contain more calories and saturated fat than low-fat dairy products, but it also gives a little bit of calcium.
The key is to add cheese just enough to make vegetables taste good, and does not eliminate the calories and vegetables fat.
Children do not like milk
The solution is by adding chocolate. In fact, children likes chocolate milk more than vanilla. If you impose full cream milk until finally he drank milk, the child will lose important nutrients provided by milk.
With or without flavor, milk provides calcium (one cup provides a third of daily needs), Vitamin D, riboflavin, niacin, phosphorus, and protein. Chocolate milk does contain additional sugar, but drinking milk with flavor does not mean you can not add sugar diet for children. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, children who drink milk with flavor have higher calcium intake than children who do not drink milk without flavor, but overall the added sugar intake is the same.
