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!
Come into our Family Food Experts Kitchen with Julia, Co-Host Carolina Jantac, RDN (Kid Kritics Approved) and me as we wise up on how to speak to kids about better food choices! Thursday, 1pm ET, on W4WN.com and W4CY.com.
