Hanlin's Tips


  1. Create a food kaleidoscope – Children commonly eat with their eyes, if it looks colorful and bright, they are more likely to give it a try.
  2. Dip it or dunk it – Offer low-fat dressings, yogurts, or hummus to make it fun to eat raw fruits and veggies.
  3. Encourage kids to be food explorers – Provide opportunities for children to sample small portions of new types food
  4. Get their taste buds travel – Provide a variety of foods from different cultures and cuisines for all members of the family to try.
