Grady is a VERY VERY picky eater! He was great when he was a baby, but now all he wants is carbs. Breads, crackers, cookies, etc. He’s pretty good with eating fruit, but it’s a huge struggle to get him to eat his veggies. I always offer them on his plate and he’s required to take a bite and try it before saying, “no thanks,” but a bite is usually all that I get. He even sometimes spits it out! GAH!!! So frustrating! I just hope that starting the habit of seeing mom and dad eat fruits and veggies at meal times will stick with him and he’ll love them when he’s older!
Eating fruits and vegetables is so important. They can help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and certain cancers; it can also reduce the chance of obesity in children. There’s a great article on the Earth’s Best Website that has some great information: Getting Your Child to Pick Fruits & Vegetables.
Earth’s Best also has a ton of products that will help get some fruits and veggies into your little ones:
If you’re struggling to get your children interested in wholes fruits, Earth’s Best has an Organic Apple Sauce that can be a good alternative for an actual apple or piece of fruit. Earth’s Best Organic Apple Sauce is made with 100% organic apples to keep little bodies and minds growing strong. The Organic Apple Sauce by Earth’s Best is perfectly sized in on-the-go cups so they can serve as snacks at any time of the day. With no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, Earth’s Best Organic Apple Sauce is available in original and cinnamon.
Grady loves these. He’ll eat apples but he either spits out the skin or I have to peel them and they turn brown really fast. This is so much better! Want to win a pack for your little one????
