Getting kids to eat healthy foods can be a challenge for parents, and registered dietician Malina Malkani has some tasty brain-boosting breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack ideas that your little ones will love.
"When we make foods fun, kids are more likely to eat them," she says, noting something like using a new utensil or serving food on a stick or skewer can be really exciting for a child and also an easy way to get a kid to try new foods.
At breakfast, the dietician -- who is also a mom to 3 kids -- loves building a whole breakfast on a skewer and she says the goal is to include the entire balanced meal on the stick. She suggests including an egg, which contains the nutrient choline, noting it is important for brain health and development, and many of us do not get enough of the nutrient.
For lunch, the dietician is a big fan of serving dips to kids, explaining eating a dip gives a child a sense of ownership and control of the food and is an easy way to prepare something healthy and tasty.
Malina's go-to after-school snack for her kids is a smoothie, sharing she likes adding yogurt (for probiotics), seeds (for nutrients and Omega-3 fatty acids), and fresh fruit (for vitamins, nutrients, and fiber).
At dinner, she says a customizable meal, like tacos, can be an exciting way for a kid to decide what goes on their plate, and a great opportunity for a child to try new foods and toppings.
