Are you struggling to feed your child who is a picky eater?  It seems to be very common in children that I have baby-sat for or among the campers with intellectual disorders that I have prepared meals for. It is challenging to make food look appetizing to those who just aren’t having it.  Spinach?  “Ew, gross!”  Broccoli?  “Noooo way!”  Broccoli with cheese?  “Yuck, there’s broccoli in there!”  Creative thinking and patience play large roles when it comes to selective eaters.

Eating Healthy!

Eating Healthy! Tagged with:

By now, everyone should be aware of the importance of healthy eating. Where your body is concerned, you get out what you put in. A healthy diet improves every area of your life – from physical health to appearance to mental health and mood. This applies across the board, but is particularly relevant for those of us who are less able. People with a disability or other chronic health problems could benefit enormously from the extra support provided by healthy nourishment. Unfortunately, our society does not make it easy for such people to maintain a healthy diet. Various constraints mean that those who need it most find themselves without a good, balanced diet, and suffer as a consequence. Were healthy eating made more accessible, and were more education regarding it provided within the disabled community, it is likely that the quality of life for many people would improve enormously.
