I want to talk about something that's been on my mind for a while now and that’s how to teach our kids about healthy eating in a way that's not just informative but also fun. In my opinion it’s important to start while they are still little.

Children are always curious, they love it when they're engaged and having a good time. So, why not make learning about nutrition exciting?

I've always had a passion for cooking even though I don’t have much time for it. Also, when I cook or bake, I need a conversion calculator  because I never have the right thing to measure the ingredients in. I prefer to measure with spoons because I find it the easiest, that’s why I usually need to convert from cups to spoons. Recently, I stumbled upon a cool website  which has  many useful calculators. But that's not all, the website has something special for kids too – food games!

My son had been dealing with a weight issue, which prompted me to make some changes in our family's eating habits and playing the food games is not only fun but teaches him what’s good for him and what’s bad.

Our absolute favorites are "Veggie Friends" and "Tasty Kingdom". In  “Veggie friends” you can simply click on different vegetables and you’re told what kind of vitamins they contain and what the vitamins are good for. I find that really interesting and informative myself. We even found some cool recipes on the site, like "Hot Dog and Spaghetti Creatures".

“Tasty Kingdom“ is a bit more challenging because if you don’t play fast enough you loose but it is still fun for my 7 year old. One of the ways it teaches kids to be healthy is by warning against bad food like fast food and promoting good food like apples. It also tells them which disease can be prevented by eating the good food.

These games are not just fun; they're like secret agents,  teaching our kids about the good and not-so-good foods undercover. What's more, they explain the "why" behind it all. It's learning by playing which in my opinion is the best kind of learning! The beauty of it is that the kids are soaking up knowledge without even realizing it.

My son, has not only started eating healthier but has also become a mini-nutritionist among his friends. He talks to them about the benefits of good food and advises against too much fast food. So cute,  I’m so proud of him. 

So, how do you teach your kids about  healthy and unhealthy foods? Share your tips and experiences in the comments below. I’d love to read about them.
