Last week in Dr. Biljana Uzelac’s interview, she said one of the most effective strategies to get kids to be open to try new foods is to enlist an outside challenge. I’ll be that challenger for you!
In today’s video I’m going to discuss some strategies for parents to introduce new foods smoothly, go over various personality types and how we might motivate them to be more courageous with their palate, and then talk RIGHT to the kids, challenging them to try something new this week (with some practical strategies) and post a picture of their new food or themselves with it on this thread (with parent permission of course). We’ll all cheer these kids on and celebrate their successes! The challenge is at the 19 minute mark of the video! Please note: We are taking entries for the challenge prize from April 16-April 26, 2019, but you can still do the challenge with your family at any time!
Kids don’t necessarily need to know about health and nutrition: they just need to build healthy habits. -Katie Kimball
Figure out your child’s strengths and use them to help your kids broaden their palates and have the habit of being ok with new things. -Katie Kimball
KIDS, this is for you! I talk right to the kids at the 19 minute mark, so grab a tablet or smart phone and skip to that part for my message and challenge for them!
