How to Introduce New Foods to Your Kids
Between picky eaters and busy schedules, you might rely on tried-and-true meals to get dinner on the table quickly. However, it’s important to expose kids to a variety of foods at a young age to help them develop healthy eating habits.
The best way to introduce kids to new dishes is to get them involved in the planning and preparation of meals.
Instead of telling your child they need to try a new type of food, ask them if there’s anything they’d like to try. You can spend some time researching cuisines or choose to make a meal that they read about in a book or saw in a movie. The more involved you can get your child in planning the meal, the more excited they should be to try something different.
If children see what ingredients are used, are able to ask questions or make decisions about how much spice to add, there’s a greater chance they’ll be willing to try a new type of dish. Make sure to tailor tasks to ages, for example, younger kids can help measure and mix ingredients while older children can wash and peel ingredients.
