If you’ve followed my posts on sugar and sodas in the last couple of days, you understand the importance of selling your kids on veggies. Childhood obesity is at an all time high and kids are experiencing the diseases of obesity such as Type 2 Diabetes that were once thought of as adult diseases. Parents frequently ask me in my Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss offices how they get their kids off of sugar and processed foods and into vegetables, whole grains and fruit so I love it when I find fun kid-friendly ideas. Preventing and reversing childhood obesity must be a family affair. Making healthy food fun is a great way to get your family involved. Your entire family can also learn hypnosis and increase their desire for plant strong food and to decrease their desire for food that makes them fat and sick.

Selling Kids On Veggies When Rules Like ‘Clean Your Plate’ Fail

Copyright ©2013 NPR.by Patti Neighmond, March 04, 2013: If you’re a parent, you’ve probably heard remarks like this during dinner: “I don’t like milk! My toast is burnt! I hate vegetables! I took a bite already! What’s for dessert?” It can be daunting trying to ensure a healthy diet for our children. So it’s no wonder parents often resort to dinner time rules.

In our new poll, with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health, 25 percent of families tell their children to eat everything on their plate, and 45 percent report setting restrictions on the types of foods eaten. Increasingly common are rules like “clean your plate,” as well as newer strictures such as “no second helpings of potatoes,” “no dessert until you eat your vegetables” and “sodas and chips only on special occasions.”

This is all well-meant advice. But does it work? Kelly Brownell, who directs the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at Yale University, says, “No.”

“By demanding that children eat things like vegetables before they have a dessert, it makes it seem like there’s something wrong with eating vegetables, and that you have to swallow medicine before you get to the good part,” Brownell says.
