“My Son Will Have Healthy Eating Habits”


Getting kids to eat right can be an uphill battle, but for celeb mommy Jennifer Hudson, it’s a non-negotiable. The singer/actress recently told Momfeeds that her three-year-old, David Jr., responds best to healthy choices:

“Really, everyone loves choices. One of my favorite tricks is the fruit bowl. In fact, when I travel for work–which is often–I make sure that there’s a fruit bowl waiting for us at the hotel.”

Jennifer, who has battled with her weight and lost over 80 pounds with Weight Watchers since 2010, also makes exercise a priority. “I’m the first to admit it: I don’t love working out. But I do love spending time with my fiance and son. So we go out for walks and we play a lot of basketball together.”

Jennifer also suggests updating a favorite indulgence with a healthier swap. Pizza Night at her house entails a pie they make together, with lots of veggies for toppings. Keep it up, Jennifer!

Kate Gosselin’s Feeding Frenzy

Kate Gosselin took to her blog to help other parents feed their children healthy foods. Here are here five tips in achieving this goal:

First of all, I have always focused on nutrition– healthy and organic
eating and have taught my kids along the way. We celebrate flavor and
healthy choices in our house. Each meal consists of all food groups in
different and exciting presentations!

Second, I started to feed as much variety to each of them as possible
just as soon as they were old enough to have a spoon in their mouths!
If they didn’t like a particular food, I continued feeding it until
they changed their minds! I still do that today! If the majority
doesn’t like a meal, I’ll sneak it in again and sometimes the reaction
is different the second or third time I make something new! Amazing!

Third, I ask the kids what they are hungry for and try to honor
those dinner choices that week. If, for the most part, you are cooking
what “the troops” are hungry for, they are more likely to eat happily!

Fourth, I stand firm when whiners take over the dinner table! No “back
up” meals are offered because I am NOT a restaurant, although, often
times I swear I work in one!
I am often heard saying, “what’s for dinner is in front of you, if you
don’t like it, no dessert and breakfast is the next meal!” [thanks, Mom! I still hear your voice when I say that!]

Fifth, I focus on waste. If you waste not, you want not and I do not
tolerate waste in any area, so I often discuss kids (whom we havemet!) who don’t have enough to eat in hopes that that message will
translate to my kids!
I’ll allow “food trading” sometimes if kids don’t like everything on
their plates– just so it’s not wasted! 🙂

What do you think of this meal plan?

Sarah Michelle Gellar Has No Problem Feeding Charlotte Healthy Food

Some moms just don’t have any problems when it comes to feeding their kids healthy food. In fact, Sarah Michelle Gellar claims that her daughter, Charlotte, loves healthy food.

On raising her daughter to have a healthy outlook: “We’ve already taught her to love healthy food. We took her to sushi on Saturday night, and everybody couldn’t believe what she inhaled. I think it’s important at a young age to enjoy different tastes. And we make this green juice for her. It’s basically everything but the kitchen sink. We go to the farmers’ market and buy everything and just put it in the juicer: kale, Swiss chard, carrots, celery. You name it. And now we’ve all started drinking it, and we’ve all been healthier.”

On going into labor: “I went into labor at the Pilates gym. And it was funny, too, because I was getting cranky, and I said to my trainer, “I’m just cranky today.” She was like, “Maybe it’s because you’re going to give birth!” And I was like, “Nah, not yet.” It turned out I was in labor, I didn’t realize.”

On her insecurities: “I totally have body dysmorphic disorder. I think most women do…I just have to remember that I’m human, and I’m a mom. Being a parent changes the vanity at least a little bit.”
