Kids Healthy Habits
With your school-age younger children at home and lots of bright sunshiny days for doing outdoorsy things, summer is a great time to put healthful activities front and center for your kids. Besides the obvious advantages of running around in the summer sun, kids can spend some summertime learning about nutrition and using what they learn in fun ways. Even young kids are quite capable of learning about the basics of nutrition and implementing these bits of know-how into easy recipes. Nutrition.gov has a great children’s section. Get on the website and find the Kids in the Kitchen link. It leads to a page full of nutritious snack ideas, simple kid-friendly recipes, and their safe preparation. There are also instructional videos which detail safety in the kitchen and the right way to add inappropriate healthy habits items into a menu.
For more fun, there’s the Kid’s Corner, which features interactive games designed to teach kids about nutrition as well as physical activity and the proper handling of food.
