The ten rules are common sense guidelines, but ones you can share with your kids to get them on board with the concept of eating more than just fish fingers or spaghetti bolognese every day. They include things like:
2. As parents, we will decide what foods are offered, when, and where. As kids, we will decide of the food that is offered, what we will eat and how much.
5. We will not offer food rewards. In other words, we do not have to ‘eat our vegetables’ in order to get dessert. We will not reward good behaviour with sweets and ‘treats’.
I might just call this the 10 commandments of eating and post it in the kitchen.
