Are you wanting to feed your child fewer processed foods but don’t know where to begin?

Here are a few tips to get started (notice the focus on whole ingredients):

Instead of:

Lunchables-type meals


Choose:

Select your own whole grain crackers, deli meat, and cheese

(Upgrade: choose uncured deli meat)



Instead of:

Boxed mac and cheese


Choose:

Boil noodles (macaroni or penne type), add butter and real shredded cheese

(Upgrade: choose whole grain pasta)



Instead of:

Meal helpers (e.g. Hamburger Helper, etc.)


Choose:

Use the mac and cheese recipe provided above and add browned lean beef.

(Upgrade: use organic grass-fed beef)



Instead of:

Pizza (delivery or frozen)


Choose:

Make your own pizza as a healthier option. Brown lean meat and drain out the grease.


Having trouble getting your child to eat the veggies? Chop them real fine in a food processor or completely puree them into the pizza sauce.


(Upgrade: use whole grain crust.)

(Fun swap: use a cauliflower crust. These are now available in the frozen foods section.)

Remember, a diet can always be improved upon. These are a few tips to begin moving away from common processed foods.


Helpful tip: Present veggies before giving your child what he or she considers “the good stuff”. Stand calmly but firmly on having your child eat a few bites or pieces of veggies before giving the rest of the meal.
