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

"For the 10th time put your damn shoes on!" you hear your child shout to their teddy whilst chopping up some toy veggies! You might be horrified at first but don't be - this is good! 

Pretend play or role play is an important part of childhood allowing your child to express their emotions...
