Fruit.. Is one of the most dreaded words and foods most parents battle to give their child. So some parents just tend to stay away from the fruit section while food shopping. But it doesn’t have to be like that, Fruit can actually be one of the most favored snack foods in your home. Like everything else we teach our kids such as to brush their teeth daily, We have to introduce the health choices we must take to stay strong and healthy like eating foods that are good for us such as fruits. It’s better to train your child to eat fruits in the early stages of their life, Introducing them to fruit juices when infants and as toddlers orange wedges, bananas etc, To grapes and nuts in kinder ages .. So it won’t a wrestling ring battle in later years. However, don’t be discouraged I know personally kids aren’t born with instruction booklets, So here’s what parents want to start doing to incorporate fruits in their children’s menu.
