The weather is finally getting warmer, and that means it time to get your kids outside and exercise. It’s a great time to go for a hike, ride your bikes on a trail or visit your local playground.
With so many things fighting for our kid’s attention, it’s important that we give them the knowledge to make good choice when it comes to exercising and eating healthy.
Here are a few tips to help your kids make better food choices:
Kids love technology. It’s a great way to help them learn and keep track of their success. HueTrition is an app that you need to get. It’s really fun and helps your kids eat better foods.
This is a super fun app that encourages kids to eat healthy foods as they feed their virtual pet. Open the app and take a picture of your meal. The more colors, the more food for your pet. It is dedicated to encouraging a balanced, active, plant-based, lifestyle that includes a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables.
They are what YOU eat! HuePets makes it fun for kids to eat healthy and try new foods! Scan real-life meals to feed your HuePet, unlocking prizes and raising your pet from a little egg to a HueMaster! Track how well your kids are eating, and get personalized recommendations on what to serve!

Put it on a stick:
Kids love kabobs! Make fruit kabobs with fruits like strawberries, grapes, pineapples, melons, bananas and more. They will also eat their veggies when we add some peppers and chicken to a skewer and grill it. You can even add some cold cuts, lettuce, and tomatoes to a stick and make a sandwich on a stick. They think it is really fun.
Let them help:
Every time you meal plan, let your kids help plan and prepare a meal. When they are invested and excited about their accomplishment, they will make sure to clean their plate.
Sneak it in:
Find recipes that include healthy vegetables that you can purée into meals like cauliflower and okra. You can also substitute oil for unsweet applesauce or yogurt.
Be the example:
Have healthier options in your home to snack on instead of chips and cookies. When your kids see you snacking on carrots and broccoli – they may want to try it. (A favorite in our home is “pepper fries”. We cut strips of red peppers and they like to eat them instead of french fries.)
