In an ideal world, our children would never be exposed to any sugary “fruit drinks” or packaged juices. But if yours have already developed a taste for sweet drinks, the easiest way to get them to begin drinking raw, fresh homemade juice is to include fruit in the juice.
What they will drink, what’s good for them
Although raw fruit juice contains higher sugar levels than vegetable juice does, your children will be much better off with these juices than with commercial juices. If you make your kids’ juices with organic fruits, that is better for them still.
Healthy eating means different things to different people. At Kids Recipes, we believe the best diet is the one that includes a little of everything, but just in the right amounts. Excluding or not having enough of certain types of food may lead to problems for growing children. Having too much may lead to health problems in later life. It is easy to have too much fat, too much sugar, or too much salt. Happily, some small changes can make a big difference.
Many of us sabotage our attempts at healthier eating because we have the wrong ingredients in our kitchen. In order to keep to better eating habits, start by restocking your pantry.
Stocking a healthier kitchen
When you are hungry, you look through the cabinets for something to eat. If you find a box of cookies or ice cream in the freezer, you are going to eat it – eventually. Resist the temptation by not having certain foods in your home in the first place.
