Preparing lunches and dinners for the whole family is a task that is increasingly shared by couples, but although it is better between two, it requires a lot of effort and planning, since in addition to cooking, you also have to go shopping, pack, freeze, plan menus of the week and cook the recipes that we are going to eat.
So far, everything is fine. It is what we have to do, we like to eat, our health depends on the food we put into our mouths and we are increasingly understanding nutrition to avoid obesity, hypertension and diabetes. In addition, on most occasions, we all lick our fingers tasting delicious flavors and enjoy family chat around a good table. The problem comes when we have a child at home who does not eat everything.
If when the food arrives at the table, he rejects everything that has a little green, begins to remove the pepper or to separate the peas from the salad, the parents' patience is put to the test. However, surely some parents are thinking that it could be much worse, since there is no way for their children to try new dishes, they refuse to eat what the rest of the family eats and to avoid being left without lunch or without dinner , you always do something that you like.
And it is that you cannot live only on bread, French fries, rice, hamburgers, breaded steaks and tomato sauce. Fruits, vegetables, legumes and fish also have to be part of your diet. To accustom these children to eat everything, it is essential to implement a series of nutrinanny strategies. Something the nutritionist has done Lucia Bultó in his book Nutrinanny's tips. The solutions that work for feeding children.
To change the habits of 'selective eaters', as this nutritionist calls these children, the first thing that parents have to be clear about is that eating only certain foods can have negative health consequences, since a varied diet is what that the child needs for its proper development. Therefore, you should combine the foods that you do not like with those that you like, for example, rice with tomato sauce and fish, avoiding filling the plate to the edges, agreeing with it the minimum amount of what you have to eat what you don't like.
Talking about the benefits of this change in your diet is also important. No single food provides all the nutrients we need. Eating a variety of food can bring you social benefits when you go to a restaurant or when you go to eat at your friends' house, apart from the innumerable advantages it entails for your health, for your weight and height, for your skin or your hair. .
