HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY OCTOBER 29 r 2010 l Here&apos;s to Health!!! Kids & Vegetables: To eat or not to eat.... Submitted by Hidalgo County Health Consortium Written by MELVIN GELB I am frequently asked by par- ents how to get their children to eat more fruits and vegetables if the children don't want to eat. fruits, and even fewer like to eat vegetables. "I can't force them," they say, "It becomes a battle at every meal." So, they just give in and give them French fries and. whatever else they are willing to eat, like chicken nuggets. What can a parent do? We know that we all should be eating more fruits and vegetables; they give us many enzymes, vitamins, fiber and other nutrients for growing up strong and being healthy. We also know that children are eat- ing less fruits and vegetables now then ever before. I confess that I was not that great at getting my daughter to eat her vegetables when .she was young. But, hey, I am so much older and smarter now! I also con- fess that there is not complete consensus among experts as to how one goes about getting kids to eat vegetables. Some believe that any way you can sneak them into the meal is OK, since it is up to us to feed our children healthy food. Others would disagree, and point out that sneaking food per- petuates a cycle of unhealthy control and robs children of their ability to grow into appreciating new foods. Not to mention their ability to "trust" their parents. Putting together information I.have gathered from a number of sources on both sides of the ques- tion I have come up with three Cheer raffle winners drawn The winners of the raffle for Valerie Mendoza's Cheer Trip to Perform in the Capital One Bowl were: I st Prize: Highlights or Color by Connie Arambula: Laura Ramirez 2nd Prize: Homemade Blan- ket: Myra Thomas 3rd Prize: Maverick T-Shirt: Stephanie Montez ....

', / WALTER SHERIFF l methods for you to consider on how to get more healthy fruits and vegetables into your children: The best way; the fun way; and the sneaky way - take your pick. The Best Way: Be a role model. If yon eat fruits and vegetables your children will to Start early by offering a large variety of foods to your tod- dler Let your children pick the fruits they want to eat when you go shopping ' Let your children help with meal preparation Start a vegetable garden at home so your children can eat vegetables they have grown Eat meals together as a family; and make mealtimes a pleasant, fun experience Keep at it, a child may need to be exposed to a certain food 10-15 times before they will actually eat it The Fun Way: Serve "Ants on a Log:" spread peanut butter onto celery sticks and top with raisins Use a salsa that your children like: on potatoes, meats or as a dip Prepare a "smiley face salad" with spinach for hair, baby carrot nose, grape tomato eyes, red pepper lips and cucumber ears Add chopped veg- etables to soups, for some reason children like lots of things in soup Cut up fruits into small pieces to be more manageable Hav'e your children make fruit and/or vegetable ka- bobs Give the serving a "funky" name, like: fairy garden salad, pirates picnic, sailor soup or forest smoothie The Sneaky Way: Puree broccoli, carrots or spinach and mix into tomato sauce Tuck mushrooms, on- ions or zucchini into chili Make some carrot muf- fins or zucchini bread Make smoothies with bananas, berries or other fruit (or a vegetable - "forest smoothie") Add cut-up broccoli or cauliflor to their favorite maca- roni and cheese Mix "grated carrots or cabbage with Jell-O (chopped fruit also works) The bottom line: have pa- tience, be a role model, and offer a variety of fruits and vegetables several times as they are growing older. Finally, if you have pre- pared the vegetables in a way that you like, and they won't eat them, well then, so many more vegetables for you to enjoy. A judge should never take sides, but make fair and impartial decisions based on the facts and evidence in each case...not on public opinion, personal beliefs, prejudice or fear. A judge should be accountable to the public and treat every person with respect and dignity. ELE00THI$ KIND OF IUDGE Nyla.
