Raising Adventurous Eaters

How to raise adventures Eaters

I truly believe that raising children who have a healthy relationship with food is important. Not only to live healthy lives, but also to enjoy trying new things and to not stifle the amazing world of food that is out there! What if I told you that raising adventurous eaters wasn’t nearly as tricky and hard as you thought it was?

I am so excited to announce that I am now a contributing writer with the Des Moines Moms Blog!  This is a local chapter of the City Moms Blog Network, and is an awesome resource for moms! My very first post is all about navigating children’s eating, and how to create positive and healthy relationships while being excited about trying new foods!  I would so love it if you would pop on over and check it out, leave a comment and share it around!

    This is great, I wish i had read this 15 years ago;P Eventually my DD came around, peer pressure eating was the best. If another child in the room was eating something then she would try it. If mom says, ‘here try this’, instant crinkled nose and suspicious eyes. Sheesh, they must think moms are trying to poison them or something.

    I love this post! I’ve been doing a lot of these things already with my 17 month old twins and they are really much better at at least trying everything that they are given (And mostly happy to eat it, too). I’m hoping it sticks around at the get older and works to help them be great eaters as adults!

      That’s so awesome! You are doing a great job teaching them at a young age! Just remember that it kind of ebb and flows~ some days will be awesome and some days they won’t eat anything but cheese sticks and cheese crackers. And that’s ok! LOL
