Promote A Healthy Summer With Healthy Eating Habits
Summer time is a great time for kids to enjoy the outside and play hard. However, getting your child to continue to eat healthy during summer vacation can be a challenge sometimes.
With longer days, children can get restless or bored in the evening and start snacking or frequent the fast food restaurants for quick bites.
Help kids maintain good eating habits with these simple to implement suggestions.
Here’s what you can do:
Keep kids on a schedule for meals and snacks. This helps them feel the signs of hunger and stops the mindless snacking between meals.
Make the kitchen off limits during the day unless it’s time for a meal or a planned snack.
Even though the days are longer and the kids might stay up longer, consider setting a time when the kitchen is closed for the night
