Unfortunately most parents don't know this and they are not able to make their children love healthy food
Why do children like the food that they like?
Is the love of junk food, a random thing that comes programmed into a child's brain?
No. It is not.
What the brain likes, is based on the physiological requirements of the body at that point of time.
It also depends on the cues from the environment.
The manufacturers of junk food know that and use this knowledge to make children love their products.
Unfortunately most parents don't know this and they are not able to make their children love healthy food.
At yesterday's workshop called "Baking for Picky Eaters" That I conducted for the OMBC bakers I talked about the "science of liking". The workshop was based on my book "What to do if your child is a Picky Eater" Published by Juggernaut Books and available on Amazon Kindle on this link.
A lot of times people give up on healthy baking because no one likes the taste of the healthy bakes.
I explined what exactly we can do when we bake with healthy ingredients - to make the bakes appeal to children.
And I was thrilled with the response from the participants.
It is really important for children to eat healthy food and that is why we cannot afford for our children to be picky eaters.
Thank you Simran Oberoi Multani(@sim_ovenderful) for this opportunity to share what I know with the amazing community that is changing the world - one bake at a time.
