HOW CAN WOODEN TOYS INSPIRE YOUR CHILD TO EAT THEIR VEGGIES?

So, the age old question "How can I get my child to eat their vegetables?"Every parent wants the best for their child. We want them to be happy and healthy and I'm sure that you're no different...

We also all know that to be healthy, a child must eat their vegetables to get the vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants needed to grow and fuel their little bodies...

Did you also know that vegetables are needed to detoxify the body! Different types of veggies have different detoxification roles within the body...
 
i.e: Sweet potato in particular helps rid the body of destructive xenoestrogens (hormone disruptors) from too much PLASTIC exposure!! 
When I talk to other parents the number one thing we all complain about is "How can I get my child to eat their veggies?"...

"Eww, I don't like that, its yucky!" says the child who hasn't even had a tiny taste!

When it came to my first son, things were no different. I would cook all this healthy food and a lot of it he wouldn't even try. One day I bought home a set of wooden chop chop vegetables for him to play with, we sat down and talked about the names of the different vegetables, what colours they were and how good they were for him. That night as I prepared dinner, he stood on a stool and chopped up his vegetables beside me at the kitchen bench. At dinner that night he was keen to try everything and most he even liked! Go figure?
Some other ways to inspire your child to eat their veggies by playing with wooden toys include

It can be a bit confusing when it comes to buying toys for your pre-schooler! When they are older they sure let you know what they must have ,oh about 11 months in advance of their next birthday! With an abundance of colourful toys screaming for your attention at the toy shop and age recommendations that aren't really helpful (heck everything says over 3 years to save their own but!) The best toys are those designed with a focus on what the child can do, rather than what the toy can do.

WHY HIRING TOYS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!
WHY HIRING TOYS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!

February 25, 2020

The idea to start a wooden toy hire business came about because of my own frustration. My eldest was born 10 days before Christmas (clearly I didn’t think that though). Getting all his toys at the same time of year he became bored of them by mid-year...
