CREATING HEALTHY EATING HABITS FOR BREAKFAST

When you’re trying to encourage your family, and especially your kids, to make healthy eating choices, it can sometimes feel like a battle. But I prefer to think of it as a game, and this fruit and yogurt parfait is the perfect ace to keep up your sleeve.

Our family loves carbs, and my kids would happily live off of bread, chips, and rice. Of course, that would lead to a lifetime of diet related health issues, so I work hard to come up with ways to encourage them to love food that nourishes their bodies.

I used to ask my kids what they want for breakfast when we woke up in the mornings. Then my one and half year old daughter responded with, “Cake!”, and I decided to change tactics. Now, instead of just asking what they want to eat, I offer two to three healthy choices. This gives them the power to choose and have some control over what they eat. But I can feel good knowing they are getting a healthy start to their day.

FRUIT AND YOGURT PARFAIT FOR KIDS

When watching someone else’s little ones, I love offering this parfait for kids who seem to only want sugar and carbs. The fruit is colorful and flavorful, walnuts give a nice crunch, and the yogurt is rich, creamy, and decadent. By using unsweetened plain Greek Yogurt, you get tons of protein, and the ability to control the amount of sugar.

We buy raw honey in bulk from local bee keepers. Not only is raw honey sweet, but it adds a lot of flavor and is full of antioxidants and other health benefits. It still contains sugar, and needs to be used in moderation. But we love having a honey crock on the counter for drizzling onto our yogurt, toast, oatmeal, and fruit.

If your kids tend to want sugary snacks or breakfasts, try letting them make their own fruit and yogurt parfait. Kids are more likely to eat a new food if they make it themselves. Even if they don’t gobble it down, just getting them to try something healthier is a great first step.
