Children are notorious for being fussy eaters. They prefer to eat things like chips and burgers than genuinely nutritious food like vegetables and fresh fruit. It’s a challenge to adapt a fussy child’s palette but it certainly can be done.
Try to cook some of your child’s favourite dishes but incorporate healthier foods into them gradually. If they like spaghetti Bolognese, cook it with less meat and more vegetables. If they enjoy burgers, try giving them a low-fat chicken burger or vegetarian burger and top it with tomatoes and other fresh vegetables.
Use lots of strong flavours to hide the fact they are eating vegetables, which can be quite bland on their own. Use things like strong cheddar cheese, as a little bit will go a very long way. You could try using reduced fat options if you are concerned about the amount of fat in your child’s diet.
