Here are some games you can play today to teach kids about eating healthy.
Guess the Vegetable Game
This is a great way to introduce different vegetables to your children while havingfun. Put different vegetables in containers and blindfold your child. Have them taste and guess what the vegetable is. You can use raw veggies like carrots and broccoli or cooked ones like squash and peppers.
Create a Vegetable Person
For the creative types, this is a fun way to actually play with your food! Use rawveggies and create veggie people. You can use toothpicks to join the parts together – just make sure your child is able to use them without poking themselves with the toothpicks. You can also lay out the veggie person on a plate. Don’t forget to eat your creation when you’re done!
