Is it safe to eat raw sweet potatoes? Were supposed to serve them to kids for lunch at school.

Is it safe to eat raw sweet potatoes?  Were supposed to serve them to kids for lunch at school.

Safe? Yes. But Raw?: Raw? That is bizarre. Excuse my frankness. What possible value would that have to a school lunch? Raw is not unhealthy, but it seems extremely unappetizing. ...Read more

My 2 year daughter habit is not easy to make her eat any launch, dinner.... How to make her eat a lot ? Someday she not get enough food....

Re-examine the issue: My expectation for feeding at that age is 3-5 good feeding days a month & the rest nibbling or grazing.There interest also shifts to carbohydrates to sustain activity rather than protein to sustain growth. Feed at the table & be sure appetizing food is always available in a for they could sample. As long as the growth rate & activity level are normal, relax.Think balanced week not balanced meal. ...Read more

What can you say to get school-aged children interested in eating their fruits and vegetables?

What can you say to get school-aged children interested in eating their fruits and vegetables?

....more: Bribing doesn't really help either.....Asking kids what they like about foods can be revealing. Some like certain colors..So offer them red or green or purple foods like their favorite toy, etc. Plain old parenting still works..."eat two bites before you can have dessert." for example....Nothing too rigid but maintaining boundaries and being persistent as well. ...Read more

Are there any good healthy foods or dishes I can prepare for a 10yo who only likes junk food?

Are there any good healthy foods or dishes I can prepare for a 10yo who only likes junk food?

Yes!: First, rapist that you are the parent. Then, realize that your child does not have the income to buy food on a regular basis. You control the food in the house, so make the food you want the kids to eat and stop buying the stuff you don't want them to eat. Unless the kids can get a job and buy all their own food, they will be eating whatyou ned them to eat today! ...Read more

Problematic question: While your list is impressive and sounds right, healthy snack might be considered an oxymoron unless one has glucose/assimilation problems. More and more times of fasting particularly overnight are being considered healthy. Less calories better/healthier? ...Read more

Kids are getting so chubby. Should parents make them work outside after school for spending money?

Good idea-chubby /no: I think its a great idea to get kids out to learn the value of their work product regardless of their weight. If it gets them away from the game console or tv it also helps them retain some of their schoolwork & decreases the idle time they may be snacking. ...Read more

Is there any way to make sure to eat pizza (except making at home) in a healthy way so to avoid heart problem Need tips,eg: don't take coke with pizza?

Is there any way to make sure to eat pizza (except making at home) in a healthy way so to avoid heart problem
Need tips,eg: don't take coke with pizza?

Limited consumption: You should eat veggie pizza only occasionally (like 1-2x a month). And very little cheese, if any. No meat. Pizza is not a healthy food no matter what you read or anyone else says. However, it is better than most other fast foods. Try to get pizza made with whole grain not white flour. Never drink soda/coke - it is never healthy. Drink water or tea. Exercise regularly (don;t need to do aerobics). ...Read more

See nutritionist: It sounds like a visit to a nutritionist would be a good idea. Also just a discussion with the family doctor could help with understanding the long term problems with such a diet. Please also understand that people have to be motivated to change their behaviior (or food) or all the education in the world will not help. ...Read more

Does overcooking vegetables make them lose their nutritional value? Can you still get some benefit from them if you eat fruit too?

Does overcooking vegetables make them lose their nutritional value? Can you still get some benefit from them if you eat fruit too?

Nutrients in Vegetables: There is no single best to answer to this question. It depends on which vegetable and which nutrients you're talking about. Generally vegetables pack the most nutrients when they are fresh, not overcooked, and not over boiled (for water-soluble nutrients). It is perfectly OK to eat vegetables and fruit at the same time. You will still absorb the nutrients from both. Enjoy! ...Read more

Can starving a child make them wanna eat more because they like to waist food ? Or is it not good for them .

Poor thought: Please never give credit to a small child for adult thinking.They are not little big people.The first year they get all their needs met by adults which makes them feel like kings/queens.As they get older you may want them to "behave" and do what you want but they still think you serve them.They learn to be respectful / behave gradually if you respect & help them.Your suggestion could lead CPS to u ...Read more

Is beyond diet a good option to choose to start a diet? They allow only to eat organic foods and they don't allow wheat, soy and corn. I am starving

Yes,no need 2 starve: I can not find many details without paying but i believe everyone should eat only organic if possible- see http://bit.Ly/19xax7e avoiding simple carbs like wheat ; corn is a well-proven method of losing weight-try quinoa instead! i don't feel all soy should be avoided-fermented soy like tempeh ; miso are ok in moderation.I avoid all those for a month every spring ; don't starve at all-see comment:. ...Read more

I offer a variety of foods to my daughter but she's so picky and refuses to eat much at home. At daycare eats well. Multivitamin?

Multivitamin ok: Kids often eat one good meal a day and are picky at other meals; however, she may be eating well at daycare if they are catering to child favorites and offering limited veggies, fruits and lean meats. Review menus at daycare, and if that is the case, then continue to offer a varied diet at home, limit sweets, and eventually she will come around. Give vits with iron as iron deficiency more likely. ...Read more
