Do you have an aspiring NBA player, veterinarian, dancer or singer in your home? How about a child determined to be an Olympian gymnast, MLB star, teacher, artist or policeman. Thousands of kids have shared their dreams with me and I simply tell them, “You can be that but you have to do 3 things: learn what you need to learn, practice what you learn, eat the foods your body needs to be the best you can be!” This gets their attention. Listen to how we connect why making healthier food choices will help them be great. Carolina Jantac, MS, RDN, LD (Kid Kritics Approved) and I will give you the keys proven to motivate children to choose to eat foods such as Broccoli Bites, Pepper Poppers and even Japchae Veggie Stir-Fry (filled with kale, spinach, shitake mushrooms and more). Facts are, these recipes tasted so good they begged for more. This show is your ticket to finding out how to turn your children on to feeding their brains, heart, lungs, muscles, hair, nails, eyes, teeth, bones and blood. No more nagging!

Have you ever found yourself throwing your hands up when reacting to your obstinate kids while shouting, “Go ahead. I’ve had enough. Do want you want.” Kids have opinions about whether they should or want to eat healthy food. They are quick to tell us, their parents, what they think about our better-for-you food suggestions and rules. Do you wonder if their rejections are really what they believe in their heart and minds? Why do they resist? What can be said to change them so they willingly choose peanuts over cotton candy, water over sodas, turkey burgers over chicken nuggets, or salad over fries? For the first time, we have invited a young guest to answer these questions candidly, Julia. She will also give us some tips on what has worked to convince her to choose healthy food over junk food. Also, she’ll share how she learned a few food truths the hard way after doing it her way. Julia is outspoken so the perfect kid to guide us away from turn-off mistakes. She is for real. Wait until you hear her responses to our questions. There will definitely be some take-away for you!
