Welcome to Nutrition for Kids from Kidamentals!
Kidamentals Nutrition for Children information is provided by Registered Dietitian and West Seattle resident, Amy Higbee.
Kidamentals strives to help parents build a favorable mindset for nutrition in children which will grow into a healthy lifestyle throughout adulthood.
One great way for parents to help instill this healthy lifestyle for kids is to simply be a role model by including healthy food and exercise in their own lives (talk about a win-win!).
Although being a role model is a great start, parents also struggle with the willingness of children to try new foods. Kidamentals recommends that parents offer many, different healthy foods to kids on a regular basis. Even though the children may not eat everything immediately, it will eventually help kids to be more accepting to trying new healthy foods.
Giving kids the tools and a positive mindset at an early age will improve their chances of growing up to embrace a healthy attitude about eating.
Kidamentals provides a great resource to:
- Learn about healthy nutrition for children
- Find recipes that are fun, quick, and often times healthier
- Find fun activities and games to play with kids in the kitchen
