The kids birthday parties have never been known to have a large menu with nutritional values, quite the contrary, usually contain an overdose of unhealthy calories and sugar for our children. Often, the anxiety of wanting to please all guests bombarded with sweets, chocolates, cakes, sugar, sugar and sugar.
Unfortunately, at the end of all, these attitudes that eventually functioned as a disservice to children, because, first, eat poorly, and then when they reach adulthood, they are accustomed to using this type of food: stuffed the dreaded empty calories.
The secret is to create foods that they can be as attractive as the “junk”, but healthy. For children, for example, the most important thing is always the presentation, so I call the colors on the packaging of products intended for children.
At a party, we must think of the tablecloth, the dishes and glasses with their favorite cartoon characters. Using molds with different shapes and sizes that they recognize will also be successful among the little so they can eat some snacks more nutrients.
You should start slowly. Why not instead of putting mayonnaise on sandwiches, you do not make a folder with light sour cream, spinach and cheese? Bread can be one carrot, orange and no distinct taste.
Or how about making mini burgers with meat, lettuce and tomato? They will not eat? Cut lettuce into strips and small, buy cherry tomatoes, and also cut very small. Do not let the taste of lettuce and tomato overlapping the meat and bread, this is one of the tips to start to introduce this concept in your family healthier.
For the candy you can do with fruit mousses, cream and light colorless gelatin. Buy small jars, colored, along with small spoons and make a very colorful table. To decorate the mousse, you can put pieces of the fruit itself.
And to follow all that, who knows delicious juices with a lot of fun combinations like apple, orange and carrot, grape, lemon and beetroot and most different of all, strawberries, lettuce and orange. All are delicious, and you can even ask guests to guess what is in each one. In addition to color are very nutritious. And if served with ice cream and straw, prepare yourself for the queue that will be formed.
You do not need to completely delete the junk food of your party, but can leave them in the background without risking the quality of your event.
