Getting Toddlers to Eat Veggies

I have finally found a way to get my kids their vegetables!! 

I’ve struggled with my son, who is a picky eater, for many years on ways to get him his vegetables. When he began eating real food as a toddler, I could not get him to eat his vegetables so I tried everything including juicing, but I just couldn’t get him to eat his vegetables.

Many of you know I love Shakeology, and sometimes I could get my son to drink a shake, but he doesn’t always like the thickness of it . We also had an amazing pediatrician approved drink called Daily Sunshine that he will drink sometimes, but he doesn’t always seem to like milk.

The idea came to me as I was making my Shakeology one morning.  Knowing I wasn’t going to get all my vegetables in for the day, I added a Power Greens Boost, which is a great way to get all of those green veggies full of all the nutrients your body needs. I decided I was going to try it with my picky eater son.

I decided to sprinkle some of the Power Greens Boost into a sugar free drink after his nap to see if he would notice anything different.  He didn’t even notice and I know he is getting his veggies.

This is super affordable and a great way to make sure your kids are getting their vegetables.  Shoot me a message at holly.hierman@gmail.com

Portion Control Tip For Nutrition

I have a super fast and simple tip for you today regarding portion control. Have you ever seen these little portion control containers on TV – they’re from the 21 Day Fix.

The cool thing is, they’re just measuring cups that you can use as a portion control tool to help you determine the correct portion sizes you need.

I don’t know if you’ve ever used a portion control diet container before or even needed to utilize something like this for weight loss, but most people I help lose weight need help figuring out how to better measure their food.

How I Eat Healthy on the Go

I have a super busy day ahead of me, if you follow me at all, you know that I have been helping with the filming of Chalene Johnson’s new educational program called the One3One diet. I normally work from home, but I feel so blessed to be able to help with the filming of this new program.

The days have the potential to run long, so I have had to make sure I prepare myself so I can sustain my energy and health. So, when I made my shake today, I added a fiber boost along with a power green boost, knowing that it would likely be a long day. I also added a banana so I have my greens covered, along with fiber and fruits.

Right now, I am running a support group to help people with healthy eating. I often get questions about what to do when you are traveling or when you know you have a long day ahead. I’ve developed these practices throughout the years and wanted to share with you some of the ways you can eat healthy on the go.

A lot of time my husband and I attend personal development and business conferences and if you add up all the time it takes to get to and from the event, along with the actual conference, you are looking at being away from home like 14 hours. What I normally try to do is pack nuts, protein bar, dried cranberries, normally a banana.

I also carry a shake with me that I could mix up if I can’t find a healthy alternative. Pack things that don’t need refrigerated so they will last throughout the day. Eat a big breakfast and bring with you healthy snacks that will keep you from grabbing something unhealthy during your those long days. Always carry water with you.

Those are the tips I have for preparing for a long day ahead. I would love to hear from you what kind of tips you have. I’m super excited to learn more today about the One3One diet and I will share with you all the details in a later broadcast. For now make sure you follow me for more tips from me on eating healthy.
