So I have been on a 30 day challenge by Fiber Choice and it got me thinking about how I have to sometimes trick my kids into getting all of their vegetables. Now that I have a fiber supplement, I am eating the right amount of Fiber daily but I had to eat several fiber rich gummies to get to that point. For me, its a tasty snack that kicks my sweet tooth while doing the job of helping me meet my fiber goals. Win/win!
Sometimes though, my eldest child sees peas and carrots in his meals and he gets completely repulsed. He will pick them out very carefully and tell me that he “can’t” eat it because it isn’t as yummy as everything else. I have picked up some tricks to help with this like blending and grinding veggies down to the smallest most inconspicuous pieces to make sure they get their proper servings. It’s amazing the lengths we go to for our picky eating children.
As parents we not only have to make sure that the kids are getting the right amount of nutrients, but we are as well. So when my son’s eyes lit up when he saw the gummies I gave him a couple. He had no idea that he was getting a fiber boost from treat and trust me even if he knew he would use that to his advantage!
It is recommended that most people can improve their fiber intake by eating the recommended amounts of fruits, vegetables and whole grains daily. Also, eating beans, peas and nuts can help improve dietary fiber intake. If patients are still unable to get enough fiber, FiberChoice® can help them better meet their needs.
Do you have to hide the veggies in your kids meals? Have you considered their fiber intake?
