how to get your kids to get healthy food

It's already the second quarter of 2017, and fading along with the months is that resolution you made to eat healthier. As Singaporeans lead increasingly sedentary lifestyles and as our diets get richer, it has become more pressing than ever to get back on track.

Here’s your chance to jump back on the health bandwagon with a second ‘fresh’ start to 2017. In celebration of World Health Day on 7 April, Bosch has prepared four food swap tips that will allow you and your family to keep to a healthier diet without compromising gastronomic enjoyment:

swapping butter with avocado puree for healthy diet for kids


Tip #1: Ditch butter and go with avocado purée instead.

It’s difficult to imagine a life without butter. It tastes delicious on your breakfast toast and it’s a staple ingredient in so many of our favourite dishes and desserts; yet it’s not doing your health any favours. Here’s a secret way to indulge in that delicious, creamy flavour without giving up on your health goals: replace butter with avocado purée. Avocados are chock full of vitamins, loaded with healthy fats, do not contain any cholesterol or sodium, and they make a great dip too.

substitute rolled oats for breadcrumbs in your children meals

Tip #2: Swap breadcrumbs for rolled oats.

Crispy breadcrumbs add a delicious layer to your dish. But did you know that pre-packed breadcrumbs are often heavily seasoned and packed with sodium? Swap it out for rolled oats mixed with herbs for an aromatic coating for your meat and crumbed seafood dishes instead.

evaporated skimmed milk provides a healthier meal choice for your kids

Tip #3: Skip the heavy cream for evaporated skimmed milk.

Evaporated skimmed milk has the same consistency as heavy cream, at a fraction of the fat. Evaporated milk tends to have a bit more sugar (about 2 grams), but the major drop in fat content makes it a worthy trade-off for your special pasta dishes and rich creamy desserts.

sneaking zucchini noodles to replace pasta to improve your kids diet

Tip #4: Replace pasta with zucchini ribbons.

Pasta is delicious, easy to make, and a staple of every busy cook’s diet. If you’re looking to cut down on your carbohydrate intake, replacing pasta with thinly sliced zucchini ribbons is a quick way to reach your goals without giving up on your favourite Italian food.
