Full of everyday nutritious ingredients you can buy at your local supermarket, there’s not a piece of kale in sight!

4get tips kids to eating ... more healthily 1 GOOGLE IT. RIGHT? Wrong. A lot of parenthood is simply making blind guesses (or wildly Googling parenting topics) and hoping we don’t mess up our kids relationship to food. When it comes to setting our kids up with a proper understanding of health and nutrition, you want to be sure you’re getting things as ‘right’ as possible for them. 2 PORTION CONTORTION Nutritionist Zoe Bingly-Pullen says, “Every child is different when it comes to portions, and the most effective way to work out your child’s needs and eating habits is by keeping a food diary.” Note when your child is hungry, how much they eat, as well as when they refuse to eat.
