Kids Healthy Diet Tips No. 1
As a mother of 5 I found the hardest thing when introducing a change to your child’s diet was their resistance. It seems kids may have the monopoly on the passive resistance technique to get their own way! Unfortunately their “own way” involves the eating of junk food such as chips, soft drinks, burgers, cakes, lollies. All the foods you know are bad for them but they seem to love. This is the first Kids Healthy Diet tip
So, how to break down this resistance? Start slowly so they are not aware of your strategy. Introduce healthy foods gradually. There are certain ways to do this effectively and achieve yourkids healthy diet.
Help For a Kids Healthy Diet
Expecting your child to come home on day one of your new plan and happily snack on carrot sticks is never going to happen! However if they arrive home and are presented with Choc Coated Banana Bites you are on a winner. Even more so when your child can dunk them themselves and watch the runny chocolate set hard. We all know bananas are good for growing bodies (and adults too!) but my chocolate recipe is an amazing health food in its own right.
Here is the recipe for the Banana Bites. They are amazing for your kids healthy diet You may have to fight the kids off so you can try one too!
Choc Coated Banana Bites
- 2 bananas
- ¼ cup cacao powder
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons agave
- Cut bananas into bite sized pieces
- Insert a toothpick into each piece and place in freezer overnight
- Combine cacao powder, coconut oil and agave and mix well together to make your runny chocolate. You may want to add more agave if you like a sweeter chocolate.
- Coat frozen banana pieces in melted chocolate. The frozen banana will set the chocolate almost immediately
- Eat straight away or store in an airtight container in the freezer
This chocolate will set below 23ºC so if you want it runny don’t store in the fridge. It is very stable and keeps well just in the cupboard. If your chocolate sets before the kids get home from school just place the container in a basin of hot water and it will melt again. Be very careful to not get water in your mixture or you will ruin the texture.
Any chocolate left over can be set and eaten as chocolate or add some raw nuts and/or dried fruit for a snack for later (or for you!)
