As a mum, I try my best to get the kids to eat well.
I make fresh food with vegetables and all sorts of healthy things. However this sometimes ends with kids who don’t want to try new things, and this leads to an annoyed mummy.
Although I am fighting the issue of very fussy kids I have found that if they help out with cooking the food, they are more likely to try the food. While cooking I have noticed that the girls like to eat some of the ingredients and therefore get a taste for the new foods.
Nestlé through their Healthy Active Kids Program is giving away a great prize to the school of your choice and a gift card for you. Read on to see how you can enter.

Did you know?
“Research has found that less than one in 10 children and adolescents are meeting the Australian Dietary Guidelines recommended serves for vegetables per day. One of the best ways to get children to eat vegetables and try new foods is through involving them in cooking.”
What is the Kitchen Kart?
The Kitchen Kart is a mobile teaching kitchen that comes complete with oven, stovetop and even a kitchen sink.
