FUN WITH FOOD
Make mealtimes fun, because a new study has found that children who play with their fruit and vegetables are more likely to eat them. Researchers believe you can help children overcome their resistance to food such as cucumbers, bananas and tomatoes by giving them permission to touch, handle and even squash them.
Protein-rich foods to up your intake: Greek yoghurt: Packed with around 10g of protein per 100g, try it as a substitute for your usual daily dairy snack. Soybeans: Soy has more protein by volume than beef, and basically no saturated fats, so young green soybeans (also known as edamame) are a great addition to your diet. Tuna: A naturally lean source of protein. Most cans of tuna contain 40g of protein.
