Transcript

  • 1. Creating Healthy Eaters Beverly Pressey, MS,RD, Mom
  • 2. Learn to Enjoy Eating with your Children  Family meals are important  Family meal defined:  Everyone present  NO: TV, telephones, books, magazines, radio  Any meal of the day, any time of the day
  • 3. Why are Family Meals Important  Studies have shown that children who eat 3 or more meals with their family:  Better nutrition from home meals  Better food choices away from home  Better grades in school  Less likely of abuse alcohol and drugs  Have greater self esteem
  • 4. Detriments to Family Meals  Preparation: shopping  Cooking and clean-up  Frustration: deciding what to prepare to keep everyone happy  Arguing: trying to get your kids to eat
  • 5. Selecting What to Prepare  It’s your job to decide what to offer at meals and offer it in an appropriate and inviting manner.  By offering food-you have done your job.
  • 6. The Two Food Groups:  Those the help you grow big and strong or growing foods  Those that are fun
  • 7. Growing Foods  Fruits and Vegetables  Meats, cheese, nuts, beans, fish, eggs, tofu  Whole grain foods  Unprocessed food
  • 8. Fun Foods  White flour bread and snack foods  Fried foods  High sugar foods: candy, juice  Most baked goods  High salt foods
  • 9. Other Adult Responsibilities  Letting children help prepare meals.  Require an appropriate level of table manners.  Supplying appropriate table setting and eating environment.  Offer food regularly, every 1.5-2.5 hours.
  • 10. Not Your Job:  How much food a child eats.  What order food is eaten.  Whether a child eats or not.  Bribing, rewarding, cajoling or tricking a child to eat. THESE ARE YOUR CHILD’S JOB Don’t be an over achiever!
  • 11. Give your Child Responsibility  Serve themselves when they are able.  Chose to eat or not.  Realize the consequences of their decisions.
  • 12. Trust your Child, Show them that You Trust Them.  Let them keep their natural ability to know when they are hungry and sated (full).  0-1years: feed on demand  1 year-until they move out: Continue to follow their lead
  • 13. Offering Fun Food  When and how much is up to you.  Let the child know that this is fun food so they will only be allowed a certain amount.  Always serve a growing food with a fun food so a child can eat to satiety at every meal or snack.
  • 14. Children Will Not Over or Under Eat  IF:  They are offered regular meals and snacks of a variety of healthy foods.  They are not constantly and continuously encouraged to eat after they have shown they are finished eating.
  • 15. You Control Timing of Meals and Snacks  A hungry child is a motivated eater.  Motivated eaters:  Eat  Are more likely to try new foods
  • 16. If Your Child Chooses Not to Eat  That is their choice.  Remind them that there will be no more food until…  They will not starve or have any nutritional deficiencies.
  • 17. You Will Not:  Become a short order cook.  Give into begging for food directly after food was offered.  Yell, threaten, bribe or punish.
  • 18. “I’m hungry”  “I would be hungry too if I didn’t eat anything for dinner.  “I would be hungry too if I only ate a cookie for dinner.”
  • 19. Snacks vs. Meals  Nutrition at snacks and meals should be equal, because your child doesn’t know the difference between a meal and a snack.  If meals and snacks before dinner are mostly fun foods, you are now determined to get your child to eat dinner.
  • 20. Dessert  Whether a dessert is a fun food or a good and good for you food, it should be offered to a child whether they ate or not.
  • 21. milk  A child 1 or over only needs 2 cups of milk a day.  You do not need to serve milk with every meal.  Always offer water for thirst after the cup of milk is gone.
  • 22. protein  Many young children don’t like meat.  Children don’t need a large portion of a protein food at each meal, there is some protein in all foods except fruits.  Children ages 1-3 need 16 grams for protein, they receive 14 grams from 2 cups of milk.
  • 23. Beverly Pressey,MS, RD, Mom  Consultations, speaking, 1-1 counseling  Author: Simple and Savvy Strategies for Creating Healthy Meals  Contact at:  PracticalFamilyNutrition.com
