$25 Amazon GC and 5 Tips to Help Kids With Food Decisions-1-US-Ends 4/16

Tuesday, April 3, 2018


This information is brought to you by HueTrition. All opinions are my own. #HuePets #HueTrition #EatHues


Children are bombarded these days with audio and visual stimuli of every kind of snack available. Is it any wonder they don't exactly know about good food decisions? It is up to us to help them learn what foods really belong in those growing bodies!!

The weather is finally getting warmer, and that means it time to get your kids outside and exercise. It's a great time to go for a hike, ride your bikes on a trail or visit your local playground.

With so many things fighting for our kid's attention, it's important that we give them the knowledge to make good choice when it comes to exercising and eating healthy.

Here are a few tips to help your kids make better food choices:



Embrace technology!

Kids love technology. It's a great way to help them learn and keep track of their success. HueTrition is an app that you need to get. It's really fun and helps your kids eat better foods.

This is a super fun app that encourages kids to eat healthy foods as they feed their virtual pet. Open the app and take a picture of your meal. The more colors, the more food for your pet. It is dedicated to encouraging a balanced, active, plant-based, lifestyle that includes a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables.

Fun Scavenger Hunt in Amherst, NY!


HueTrition, an innovative technology company, specializing in promoting the consumption of colorful fruits and vegetables, and Whole Foods, whose purpose is to nourish people and the planet team up to bring a HuePets Scavenger Hunt Program!

On Saturday, April 21st and Saturday, June 9th from 9 am to 11 am, we will be holding a Live Hue-Scavenger Hunt right inside Whole Foods Market located at 3139 Sheridan Drive in Amherst, NY!

There will also be fruits and veggie samples, free hue swag, as well as a live demo of how our application works! Click here to learn more.


Put it on a stick:

Kids love kabobs! Make fruit kabobs with fruits like strawberries, grapes, pineapples, melons, bananas and more. They will also eat their veggies when we add some peppers and chicken to a skewer and grill it. You can even add some cold cuts, lettuce, and tomatoes to a stick and make a sandwich on a stick. They think it is really fun.


Let them help:

Every time you meal plan, let your kids help plan and prepare a meal. When they are invested and excited about their accomplishment, they will make sure to clean their plate.

Sneak it in:

Find recipes that include healthy vegetables that you can purée into meals like cauliflower and okra. You can also substitute oil for unsweet applesauce or yogurt.

Be the example:

Have healthier options in your home to snack on instead of chips and cookies. When your kids see you snacking on carrots and broccoli - they may want to try it. (A favorite in our home is "pepper fries". We cut strips of red peppers and they like to eat them instead of french fries.)

By not buying any junk food.

I started them young and never had to fight to get them to eat what was served.

Elizabeth Miller said...

For the most part, I have never had a problem with this. We introduced healthy foods when they were little and kept them in place as they have grown. Once in a while we have hit a little blip where they started to back off of them. We would change out to other healthy foods and then bring them back in slowly and it worked so I just more saw it as they got tired of certain ones.

By example. My kids are served the same healthy foods I make for my husband and myself and they are required to at least try a bite of it. If they don't like it they don't have to eat it but a lot of the times they end up liking it and continue to eat it.

By making snacks that are healthier

Steven Weber said...

Introducing them to healthier foods!

imbigwillie said...

Our first is on the way, so we haven't had to yet.

Rachel said...

My little one isn't eating solid foods yet so I've never had to try to get healthy foods incorporated in the diet.

Dan Dykstra said...

We give them fruit instead of junk food and they love it.

Nicole Martin said...

I make them eat a lot of fruits instead of sugary snacks.

Casey Garvey said...

I try to hide the healthy food. Like on a grilled cheese I tried califlower instead of bread and she loves it!

Tough Inspector said...

I've learned that my kids will eat pretty much what I eat as long as I make it look good and colorful! Fun shapes always help! NIcole Bowers

no dessert until you eat your veggies

Deb PelletierC said...

My parents would tell us, " Children in China are hungry and they would be happy to eat their veggies". I do the cooking so there is meat, veggie and some kind of potato on the plate. And a fruit as a snack.

Diana So said...

I started mine early and we talk about eating healthy to become strong and grow to be like the Hulk or his Dad.

Lacey Ann said...

Just by setting a good example and explaining the "whys" on why some things are more moderated by others. Establish good habits young and all that.

We give my nephew options that he enjoys. If he cannot stand a particular vegetable, we don’t make him eat it, as long as he’s tried it. Even though making another side for him is an extra step, it allows for us to know that he’s getting in his nutrients and a balanced meal.

Terri. said...

Only buy healthy options...

Melissa said...

I like using cookie cutters to make healthy foods look cute & fun.

Ashy said...

I cut all their food into pig shapes lol

Wendy ArtsyChaos said...

Not having the junk around and replacing that with already cut fruits and veggies seems to work.

Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

The grandkids know they have to eat good stuff before they can have a treat. We hide all the bad stuff. LOL

benz1171 said...

I try not to have soda or chips when they are here.

mail4rosey said...

My granddaughter used to be so good about eating healthy. Now she's in aftercare and they give her things like Moon Pies despite my DIL having a fit about it, and her tastes are changing for the worst. When she's with grandma, I always tell her, 'remember when you did...' and go into a story about how she LOVED to eat such good food, and we laugh... and then she mimics that behavior and is like, 'grandma watch me eat this piece of broccoli!' So far, so good. I'm hoping it holds out. ;)

My kids are full grown, so no problem getting them to eat veggies.
