Hey, all! Guess what? I’ve joined moms all over the blogosphere in the Looney Tunes Eating Right Kids Program, a program devoted to promoting healthy eating in our children! What does this mean to you? Over the next five weeks, I’ll be sharing my experiences and tips on teaching our kids to eat more healthy, and I’ll be hoping for tips from you as well! When moms get together and start sharing ideas, we are unstoppable!

On top of that, I will be giving away a gift basket valued at $100 ! :-)

Eating Right – My Experiences:

As a mom, I find myself facing overwhelming challenges when it comes to providing my family with healthy meals and snacks. Probably more than some because I don’t have a talent for planning meals and even my husband makes a face if he thinks something is “healthy”. But I know how important it is for little ones to have a balanced diet when they’re growing and putting out so much effort and energy toward learning, so I persevere in keeping good foods in the house and on the table.

My Personal Challenges:

  • I’m a working mom, and that means less time for planning. When I don’t plan, I have to think fast. When I think fast, I don’t usually think smart.
  • My daughter is 15 months old and doesn’t have any back teeth yet. That makes mealtimes a bit more complicated – I can’t just throw a bowl of raw veggies and dip on the table, I have to steam or boil them first. It’s a time issue again.
  • It’s hard for me to be creative when it comes to eating right. I know that kids want fun, so I plan on making a book of ideas to reference when my daughter is older. Right now she doesn’t really care what it looks like, but I know later she will.

Safeway is now carrying a variety of Looney Tunes Eating Right products – they’re easy to find, just look for Bugs Bunny and friends! :-)

Tasty Tip:

Teaching your kids to use their imagination when eating something they don’t love can make mealtime more fun! When I was a kid, I used to pretend that my broccoli was a forest of trees and I was a dinosaur eating the leaves, then the trees themselves. I think this was around the time I watched The Land Before Time – that was my inspiration. lol

6 Responses to Healthy Eating Habits For Kids (Looney Tunes Eating Right Kids Program)

  • I'm going to be following your posts on this really closely, because I am at my wits end trying to get my kids to eat healthy. It seems like all they really want to eat is pizza and hotdogs. Although one son loves peas will eat almost anything with cheese on it. I make really yummy things with veggies, but they will not even TRY it! Looking forward to your suggestions.

  • I can barely get my son to eat anything, much less healthy food. He's underweight and not growing, so I'm just trying to get calories in him. He's okay about fruits, but veggies are a no-no for him. Even though he's 2, I still feed him baby food veggies, since he'll tolerate those some times.

  • We just don't buy junk food. Period. They can't eat it if it isn't in the house! We make fruit kabobs, and I cut cute little shapes out of cheese with cookie cutters. Getting the kids involved in making snacks and meals really helps too. It can be such a challenge to get kids to eat healthy foods!

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

  • I've been lucky with my son because he loves fruits and veggies. All I have to do is put them in front of him and he eats them. He will try anything

  • My children will eat raw uncooked baby carrots, celery sticks, liced green peppers but I have problems getting them to eat cooked vegetables. Thye will eat just about any fruit so I am lucky.

  • I have noticed that my son will eat cooked veggies in different meals, so I try to sneak them in anywhere I can!
