Kids

Tips and ideas that will help our children develop a sense of value towards food from an early age.

Role model

Children learn how to behave mainly through the messages we convey them. If they actually see us throw away the contents of the pot that stood in the refrigerator and load the meals at the hotel plates, that will soon become waste, that’s the message that will pass

Don’t pile up

Most parents want their kids to finish a plate full of food, but in reality, most of the food ends up in the bin. Match the amount of food on the plate to what the child normally eats, not your expectations.

Little garden

Use areas on the roof or in the community garden to grow with your kids vegetables that can be used for home cooking. This allows you to show children what resources are needed to grow food and thus create a sense of value for our food

Shopping with kids

Most of us prefer to shop online ,But when we do go to the supermarket, it is worth taking the little ones once in awhile so they can see that even the less beautiful fruits and vegetables will be suitable for our salad. You can also choose products that are unattracted if you plan to cook them

Cooking time

Invite your kids to join you in the kitchen while you make a banana cake that has blackened, a sour milk cake or a matbucha from unappetizing tomatoes. In that way they will be able to see how less attractive ingredients become especially tasty.

save the food

Another way to increase the sense of value towards food among children is to take them to volunteer activities in a place that allows picking and gathering fruits and vegetables.

Most of us prefer to shop groceries online, instead of reaching stores or supermarkets. But when we do go to the supermarket, it is worth adding the little ones once in awhile so they can see that even the less beautiful fruits and vegetables will be suitable for our salad. You can also choose products that are unattracted if you plan to cook with them today or tomorrow
