Parents in the Salt Lake City and South Jordan areas are continually looking for ways to improve their children’s health and well-being. Today in the Draper Kid’s Health Blog, we want to give you four simple ways to do this with children’s nutrition suggestions.
1. Buying healthy snacks for your kids is pretty simple these days. Most Salt Lake City supermarkets are packed with fresh fruit and veggies year-round along with low-fat cheese, nuts, and whole grain crackers. But, as you put those groceries away, remember to consider location, location, location. If your kids can’t find the healthy stuff, they’re not going to eat it. Place fruits at children’s eye-level in the fridge and other healthy snacks at the same height in the pantry.
2. Keep treats treats. When something is given to a child every day (or even two or three times a day!), like candy, it stops being a treat. When it’s time to indulge, make it a special occasion where the family joins in. You could take a trip to one of the great ice cream parlors in Sandy after a family game night, or stop for milkshakes after an afternoon at the park. Just keep the frequency of these outings low enough that each time it happens, it’s still a treat.
3. Speak up to other Salt Lake City parents about what you want offered to your child. As the snack list for soccer games is passed around, suggest specifying what should be included and what shouldn’t (i.e. orange slices good! doughnuts bad!). Chances are, other parents have been hoping someone would clarify the issue and set some healthy standards.
4. Set a good example. If you’re complaining about the veggies in your meal (or if your spouse is) the kids will follow, and then some.
