Making Healthy Eating Fun

Many times, the way something is presented plays a large role in how receptive or excited kids and adults become about the issue. If you are trying to transition your family to a healthy eating lifestyle, you may be more successful in the attempt if you make mealtime exciting and snack time enjoyable. It also helps if you’re not alone in your endeavor. If other parents you associate with are also focusing on healthy eating, you can share tips and ideas for making the transition fun and easy.



It’s Not Just About the Food

When you send snacks to school with your kids or pack a snack for them to enjoy on a car trip or when they’re outside playing with friends, take a little extra time to make the snack unique. Make the packaging fun by putting a sticker on the bag or drawing something silly on the bag. You can tuck a note or other small surprise in the bag. Pieces of fruit, veggie sticks or a healthy trail mix can become a fun snack when you add a personal touch to the packaging.


Enjoyable, Healthy Meals


When an occasion arises that requires you to give a gift to your friends who share your healthy eating lifestyle, food gift baskets are an impressive gift. Your friends will appreciate the convenience of a gift basket filled with the fixings for a fantastic meal. As you look for the perfect gift basket for your friend, you might find some baskets that you’d like to try yourself. There’s no reason you can’t order one for your family. A healthy family meal basket would be something fun for the family to delve into and prepare together.  A soup basket is a great gift idea for grandparents.

You can get your whole family excited about healthy eating by preparing fun snacks and delicious meals. Stay open to new ideas, such as food baskets and recipe swaps with friends that can support your healthy eating lifestyle.

  3. I think food baskets are my favorite kind of gift to receive. They usually have goodies in there that I don't normally buy for myself, so it's fun to have someone else splurge so I can enjoy :)
