Try new foods: Promote healthy risk-taking

Trying new foods teaches children a valuable (and yummy) lesson in flexibility and adaptability. Take your kids to new restaurants or try new foods at home. Not only will they learn to take on new challenges, but it also teaches kids to view new and unfamiliar things in a positive light.

See other people’s silver linings

Tasks that encourage toddlers to ask for help are perfect for building their little mind, as asking questions is an important way to learn.

Practice taking risks

Will it be gross? Maybe! New foods are a great way for little ones to practice healthy risk-taking. And with positive experiences, they become more open to new things.

Increased physical health

A balanced diet is one where our kids enjoy variety and colour. This helps them grow up healthy and resilient, both physically and psychologically.
