We are all guilty of eating less than healthy around the holidays. And the truth is our unhealthy eating habits rub off on our kids. And let’s not even get into the things consumed while we are making those delicious treats.
Now that the holidays are behind us, it’s time to get ourselves back on track. And this needs to be a family affair. You need to get your kids back to eating healthy as well. So I’m going to give you some tips on how to encourage healthy habits after the holidays.
Find Healthy Snack Alternatives
My kids loves yogurt. So when we saw Chobani® Gimmies™ yogurts for kids I decided to give it a try. We’ll just say it was a big hit. Chobani® Gimmies™ yogurts for kids come in the flavors of Choco Chunk Cookie Dunk, Ooey Gooey S’more, Poppin’ Cotton Candy, Rainbow Sprinkle Cone and Best Birthday Ever. Being the big campers that we are, naturally the Ooey Gooey S’more flavor was my 8 year old’s first choice. He LOVED it!
They also have a line of milkshakes, Chobani® Gimmies™ Milkshakes. They come in Bizzy Buzzy Strawberry, Chillin’ Mint Chocolate, and Cookies and Cream Crunch. We tried the Cookies and Cream Crunch yogurt milkshake. I love that the milkshakes come with easy to use straws.
Here are the nutrition facts about this yummy snack that can be found at your local Walmart. Don’t forget you can use their handy online order pickup and delivery service to save time.
Chobani® Gimmies™ yogurts are made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients, and never any thickeners, preservatives, or artificial sweeteners. Like all Chobani® yogurts.
Drink More Water
Juices and sodas tend to be offered at every family gathering. If you are a family like mine who doesn’t normally have these drinks at home, your kids are like mine and all over the sugary drinks when they have a chance. The holidays are over so it’s time to give up the sugary drinks again. Encourage your kids to drink water as much as possible. There is nothing better for your kids than water and chances are your kids aren’t getting enough water. H20 is the way to go.
Sorry that last line was really cheesy!
Offer More Fruits and Veggies
Got a kid that is always starving on your hands. Give them a fruit or vegetable snack before offering anything else. This will give them a chance to decide if they really are hungry or if they are just bored eating. If they really are hungry it will give them a chance to get something really nutritious.
Lead by Example
Our kids are always watching us. So it’s important that we lead by example. If they see us drinking sodas and eating that cookie or cake, they are naturally going to want what we have. Drink more water yourself. Eat more healthy snacks yourself. Not only will this make YOU feel better, but you are going to be setting a fantastic example for your kids.
