How do you get your kids to eat healthy?

On The Show

What type of food do your kids like to eat and what are some of the struggles you face as a parent. Our hosts, Art Eddy and Jon Finkel share their stories with you.

Here is what some of the viewers said…

Diane Meyer I make meals where the flavors/sauce mask the taste/look of the veggies. If they try it and genuinely don’t like it, I won’t make them eat it.

AJ Cliff I put veg on my kids plates then pick it up off the floor after while they eat ice cream 🤷‍♂️ it’s a vicious cycle.

Jamie Ruth Sherwood Getting kids to eat healthy starts very young. If you don’t feed them the junk, they won’t eat it. If they are able to understand what foods are healthy what ones aren’t then they will be informed enough to make good choices. My son knew at 2 years old what healthy food was and why we don’t eat sugar, we used the phrase “it’s bad for our bodies” and he just didn’t eat it. Also, starting a vegetable garden with kids is a very good way to get them to eat veggies, they will LOVE eating what they grow!

David CumpianI’m a fitness manager and my wife is a RN we both workout, so what we eat our son eats. So he was pretty healthy.
