Tricks to Get Your Kids to Eat Vitamins

A Deliciously Fun Way For Your Kids To Get Vitamins!

Jul 30, 2018

Remember when we were kids and we won’t eat enough, our parents had to give us vitamin syrups just so we get the essential nutrients? It is only normal that your kids too probably will not like eating those healthy foods you prepare for them. But you can make sure your kids get those important vitamins by adding a few interesting twists to the regular and boring healthy foods.

Vitamins play an important role in proper growth and development of children by helping the body systems and processes function correctly. As they are calorie-free, they don’t provide your kid with energy. They need to be taken in a small amount at regular intervals through healthy diet as our body cannot synthesize these nutrients. Deficiency of these essential nutrients during childhood can lead to serious health issues and disorders in the adult years.

Instead of spending your energy in telling them over and over again, let’s just make their food so interesting that they will ask for more themselves.

Never Skip Breakfast Again:

Do you also start your day with a nagging and whining breakfast session with your kids? While it is important to have a healthy diet during breakfast, convincing your kids to eat these foods is difficult. Kids dislike having the whole grains, leafy greens and vegetables due to the bland and boring taste. So, spice it up with a hint of desi tadka by adding a spoon of Nutralite Mayo Achari to their sandwiches, rolls etc.

Snack Healthy:

Your kids will snack on whatever they find around them. Display the fruits where your kids can see them and encourage them to munch on these whenever they are hungry. Rather than giving them any instant foods, prepare snacks like cutlets, aloo tikki or wedges, salads loaded with fruits and veggies etc. Add a little bit of Nutralite mayonnaise to enhance the taste. With added vitamin A, D and E, Nutralite mayonnaise realizes 30% of daily vitamin requirements.

Guess the new veggie:

When it comes to food, don’t we all want variety? Kids too get bored with the repetitive daily menu and refuse to eat the healthy home-made foods. Therefore, try out different recipes and add one new vegetable into the mix everyday. On the dinner table, make a game out of it and let them guess the new veggie. Not only they will enjoy their meal time better but also won’t miss out on the essential vitamins.

Kids are generally very choosy regarding foods, which is why moms struggle to convince them to eat healthy foods. During these growing years, you need to make sure that the nutrition intake of your kid is up to the mark. Even though it becomes tricky to satisfy their taste buds, you can always be a little more creative and make their healthy meals tastier.
