Is there a parent out there that hasn’t dealt with their child being a picky eater at one point?
My three-year-old daughter, Ava’s eating habits are constantly evolving and changing. She has went through stages of not wanting to eat anything, to eating everything insight and then refusing certain foods that don’t look a certain way. As a parent, I’m constantly trying to find new combinations of foods and snacks that are not only appealing to her, but healthy too. This is obviously easier said then done! There is only so much I can do to combat her picky eating at times.
I have come up with certain tricks to get my daughter to eat a well balanced and nutritious diet. Ava hates having to chew too much and that can be a problem when it comes to eating vegetables and meat. To promote eating vegetables at snack time I don’t serve them to her chopped, but shredded. When I shred her carrots (her favourite vegetable) she eats them up like sugar-filled cookies! Similarly, this technique of making her food smaller is great for disguising meats in her dinners.
Picky eaters like more daughter are notorious for missing out on key nutrition, so I make sure she gets a vitamin supplement each morning. After trying a lot of products, we finally settled on IronKids Gummy Vitamins from Life Science Nutritionals. IronKids Gummy Vitamins are made in Canada and offer a variety of doctor reccomended vitamin supplements specially formulated to support the nutritional needs of kids. The gummies are made with real ingredients while being free from a sugar coating, aspartame, and artificial colors. All IronKids Gummies are also made in a nut free facility, and are dairy and gluten free.
With Iron Kids Gummies, I’m confident my daughter’s nutritional needs are being met, so she can get the most out of her active day. At the moments, Ava is taking the IronKids Multi-Vitamin Gummies. The gummies taste great and are super easy to chew unlike solid vitamin based supplements. It feels great that I never have to deal with a picky eater when it comes to Ava taking her vitamins. To be honest, she actually begs for more!
