Making healthy food choices is an important skill for kids to learn early in life.
These days it is no longer enough just to eat well-balanced meals together as a family, parents need to take responsibility for their children’s healthy eating as it may affect them later in life.
According to Healthy Eating Advisory Services, below are some of the healthy games and activities for kids.
The veggie guessing bag
Try this activity to increase children’s recognition and awareness of different vegetables. Place some vegetables (real or plastic) in a bag (e.g. pillow slip). Ask children to feel inside the bag and guess which vegetables are there. As a variation, blindfold children and place a vegetable in their hands. Ask them to guess what the vegetable is by feeling, smelling and even tasting it.
