3 Tips For Raising Plant-Based Toddlers
Three things I've learned while raising plant-based toddlers to make the whole process easier (and to avoid having picky kids):
Get them involved in the kitchen & grocery shopping. Even at a young age they can have a say in what fruits and vegetables they want and enjoy. They will be more likely to eat it if they participated in picking it out.
Offer them more of what they like. Is your child on a green bean kick? Then let them eat green beans! Instead of arguing with them to have them make a different vegetable choice, offer options but ultimately, a positive relationship with fruits & vegetables in more important. Especially at a young age.
Practice what you preach. If you turn up your nose to every vegetable under the sun, our kids will learn that that is okay. I believe that it is our job as parents to encourage exploring new foods, which means we need to do it too! Our taste buds are always changing so try a new food with your kiddo and make it a positive experience! (Even if you don't love it)
