Peare's Pals Kids Club - Where eating healthy is fun!

A healthy diet is an essential piece of a happy life and if you think that eating healthy is all about vegetables you're wrong! A healthy diet is a proper balance of the food groups in the amount that is best for you; so yes you can have the cheese, pasta or even pepperoni pizza, but it can't be all you eat.

When you eat a balanced diet you'll have more energy to play better and faster, you will feel good and be developing healthy habits for the future!

Tips for Parents

Getting your child to eat healthy can be like herding cats. Just when you think you've made a breakthrough they wont eat what they loved the day before. Let's face it, kids are fickle but there are some tricks you can arm yourself with to ensure that your little one gets the nutrition they need to grow big and strong.

Get them Involved

Getting your child involved in the process of making the food and educating them about the food (like where it comes from or how it's made) while preparing it will increase their own interest in actually eating the food.

Choose Healthy

If you stock your fridge and pantry with nothing but healthier snack items your kids will eat it. Choose items like baby carrots, sliced apples, string cheese, whole grain crackers, fruit leather and trail mixes.

Be a Role Model

If your kids see you making healthy choices from a young age the more likely they will make the same choices for themselves!
