From spoons zooming in the air like aeroplanes, stories of dragons and monsters to promises of treats and at dire times, threats—making kids eat vegetables is not easy. Ask any mom. I raised hell when my mom tried to feed me healthy greens in my childhood (by the way, I’m still not a fan). Parents know that carrots, spinach, beetroots and such other veggies pack a powerful nutrition-full punch, especially for bone and muscle growth of their kids.
But now, moms and dads have another trick up their sleeves—Mimmo Organics, a baby food brand. Just whip up their delicious, nutritious snacks once in a while and make your babies fall in love with the taste of vegetables. Click here to choose from a range of their vegetable pasta, fruit cereals and juice mixes.
How much veggies should a kid eat?
After the first six months of the exclusive breast-milk diet, a child needs nutritious semi-solid foods along with mother’s milk. Cereals, rice and porridge, are some excellent examples of how you can introduce the young, developing taste-buds to healthy eating.
Mimmo Organics offer a variety of certified organic and preservative-free foods for your growing baby.
A child over 2 years of age requires plenty of carbohydrates, fats, calcium, proteins and vitamins and green vegetables, pulses, fruits and milk are full of them. But if you happen to have a fussy eater at home, they may lose out on some of these essential nutrients. One trick is to make tasty dishes and add vegetables to them. For a toddler, this may mean a glass of organic juice before playtime or replacing dry food with pasta every so often. Follow this link to get the healthy, tasty ready-to-make foods now!
How can I get my child to eat vegetables?
It’s amusing that this is one of the most frequently asked questions on the internet. But that also shows how concerned mothers and fathers are about their child not growing up with optimum nutrition.
The best way is to cook veggies in a way that kids won’t be able to find out what is in their bowls. How do you prepare vegetables for picky eaters? By making them yum, that’s how!
