This week we enjoyed sitting around the table enjoying healthy meals together.
People of all ages eat better when they share a meal with others and children, particularly enjoy it.
At Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach, we recognise how important it is to promote healthy eating in early childhood. We make every effort to make mealtimes as relaxed and comfortable as we can.
Sitting to eat with the children is an opportunity to begin a discussion about the healthy foods that they are eating, talk in positive ways about foods and where they come from, and encourage discussions about the importance of food to promote healthy growth and development in their own bodies.
This is the perfect opportunity to talk to the "fussy eater" and encourage them to try the new foods that their peers are eating
In this environment, children learn about the foods they eat, they see their peers eating foods that they don't eat, and receive encouragement and have the confidence to be a little bit more adventurous
