The good news and the bad news

The good news and the bad news

Many times in our lives we are asked the question, do you want the good news or the bad news. Statistically, people chose the bad news first, hoping that the good news will outweigh the bad.  So, do you want the good news or the bad?

Let’s start with the bad. The bad news is that getting your children to eat healthy and nutritious is sometimes an uphill battle. The good news is we have ways that can help you! Did you know that one in six kids in the U.S. is significantly overweight, and not getting the proper nutrition they need to be healthy?  This is a concern, especially to companies like ours where we believe “healthy” and “vegetables” go hand-in-hand.

That being said, there are ways to talk to your children about eating healthy, as well as a ton of recipes to get them to eat the things they might not enjoy! When you are talking to your children about nutrition, use phrases like, “Make sure you are eating the things that will help you run faster and jump higher.” Relate it back to how the vegetables can help them grow or aid them in sports or their chosen activity.

Another thought is to add options. Serve them green beans and corn and let them chose which they prefer! When children feel like they are in control, or are part of the process they tend to react more positively. At Hanover Foods, we believe that a healthy and balanced diet is key. Below are a few recipes that you can utilize to help your children eat their vegetables and get the nutrition they need! That is good news!
