If you have children be healthier to eat

How do you get children to healthy choices, and have more vegetables on your plate? Junilla Larsen is a researcher at the Radboud University nijmegen and the author of the book Eating in the statement of financial position: A healthy eetopvoeding.

What was the genesis of this book?

“We live in a world where junk food is everywhere. Everywhere we go, in to the temptation to put junk food to buy. That is what makes us fat. Socially and politically, there is the desire to do something to change that, but it’s going slowly.”

“That is why it is important to keep the stitches on the other side, parents are the handles that they have returned home with a healthy eetomgeving be able to create it. And they have children to encourage healthier choices. That is, in later life, as healthy children become healthy adults.”

Because of the healthy choices, so as to learn from it?

“Sure. There has been a lot of scientific research has been done into the way in which we will be able to take care of children, for example, eating more vegetables. Only a lot of information that parents and other guardians do not. With my book, I wanted to have the knowledge available to a broad public. And the theory is translated into practical tools.”

If you leave your children to eat vegetables

How can parents help their children to have more vegetables on your plate?

“For example, it repeatedly has to offer. Studies show that children vegetables are going to try and appreciate it when you make it at least eight to ten times at various times of services.”

“When a child is three times the bean has been denied, think about the parents, Let it sit there.”
Junilla Larsen, researcher at Radboud University nijmegen

“But a lot of the parents are long-since stopped running. When a child is three times the bean has been denied, think about their parents, and those green beans. That is lust and he doesn’t.”

Is your behavior affecting?

“If you have to be happy watching if there is something you can taste, children will be more likely to also get a bite to take in. There is a lot to consider. You can also tell you that you have broccoli at first, we thought, but that’s to taste it now but desire. And that is the food of broccolibomen’, for example, you can learn to ride a bike.”

Leverage works in reverse

You, as a parent, to exert pressure? Should your kids require something to eat?

“Stress is usually counter-productive. Children from the age of two, are all organic individuutjes. They’re fine with their mom or dad, something important and will come up against them in rebellion. Just offer it and if it doesn’t work, try again later.”

“Let the young children with their eating, even if they make a mess of it.”
Junilla Larsen, researcher at Radboud University nijmegen

“It is important to have the freedom of a child of the member. Young children often play with their food. ‘Do-it-yourself, it is a wise decision under the biennials. Láát they have to do it yourself. Also, if they make a mess of it.”

“Children are like vegetables, for example, pinch them together, and licking. If you have young children, and the freedom of the vegetables to be discovered, they will be more likely to get the fruit and taste it.”

And for the older children. It is, however, a constraint? For example, rule-making?

“In families where the rules for food apply to all, children seem less heavy. From the age of seven, children may be fine with the rules. In addition, it allows you to talk to them and explain why you have certain rules to writing.”

“It’s important to be positive and to love. So it is not too much of a no-rules attitude. Do not say: “You can’t have two cookies, “but,” You may be the 1 cookie’. Or, if we use the plug in from the sound side, ‘We have to taste at least one bite of a vegetable.'”

Eating healthy food has a negative image

In the book calls for more positivity around healthy eating. Why is it important?

“Healthy eating has a negative image. Fruit ‘be’, as they are healthy. That image needs to be removed. Parents can help by encouraging healthy eating is something enjoyable to do. For example, different types of vegetables in different colours, and kids to choose from. Or offer it in fun shapes or with a parasolletje it as a ” dessert.”

That is for the parents to direct the largest health gains to achieve?

“By switching from soft drinks to water or tea without sugar. Research has shown that children who drink water instead of sugary drinks, reduced fat adult. Many parents and educators don’t realize the amount of extra or unnecessary energy to the children in their diet through sugary drinks.”

How does it affect the education of the healthy eating habits of children, only more so.

“We are all asked, is the relationship between emotions and behaviors and a to eat. For example, when we are in pain or distressed. Then, we get a troostkoekje’. Also, if the kids are misbehaving, give them something sweet to get them to stop.”
