Every parent’s struggle–how to get their kids to eat vegetables! Have you sat with your kids way past mealtime just to make sure they eat their veggies? How about resorting to bargaining more gadget time for just one more bite of that yummy carrots? Well, you’re definitely not the only mom doing that. Even celebrities, like Camille Prats, have to do a bit of negotiating just to get their kids to eat their veggies.
“I really used to struggle kasi hate na hate talaga ng kids ko dati ang veggies–ayaw nila yung taste. Taste
is so important for kids, so I ensure na dapat na-eenjoy nila mga sineserve ko.”
Fortunately, Camille shared some handy hacks with Spot.ph to do the trick without the crying, bargaining, and
the unnecessary drama that fills mealtime.
Here are 3 easy peasy ways to get your kids to eat their veggies according to Camille:
- Oh My Gulay! May Gulay! – Instead of only serving your kids veggies, partner your kids’ meals with
Tang Fruit & Veg. It comes in two flavors: Orange Carrot, which has the Vitamin C from oranges and
Vitamin A from carrots, and Dalandan Malunggay, which has the Vitamin C from dalandan and the Iron of
malunggay. Tang Fruit & Veg has the delicious taste of fruits AND the nutrition from veggies in a drink
that kids love! Camille can vouch for this – her kids love its taste so much, that they actually ask her for it
themselves! Yummy na, masustansya pa!
2. SmartMom Recipes – No need to work hard, just work smart! Incorporate veggies in delectable recipes that you know your kids will surely love. Your kids won’t notice that veggies are actually the main ingredient because of their delicious taste!
3. Appearance is key – Kids are very visual so it’s really all about making their plate look fun! Focus on making veggies look appetizing by using creative shapes and brightly colored bowls to increase their appetite. You can even add in their favorite animal or cartoon character for that extra wow factor! You can go as simple as making trees out of broccoli or more complex as making pirates from cucumbers–the idea stays the same: make it fun!
