Nutritionist Anita Bean offers parents tips on cooking with natural ingredients
Parents may claim to be providing their children with healthy, home-cooked meals, but research into kids' eating habits tells a different story. New research by The Honey Association shows that 86% of parents claim to cook entirely, or mostly from scratch every evening, but when children were polled about the foods they are actually eating, processed foods with poor nutritional value came at the top of the list.
Nine out of ten kids have eaten chips before and eight out of ten have tried burgers but nearly 40% had never tried broccoli, two thirds had never tried broad beans and 82% had never eaten an aubergine.
With this in mind, the Honey Association has put together a new video featuring nutritionist Anita Bean, who demonstrates how easy it is to incorporate natural, healthy ingredients into kid-friendly recipes. Anita whips up a batch of delicious blueberry and honey muffins, and offers parents easy nutritional advice to help them freshen up mealtimes.
Anita Bean's honey recipes are captured in a free glossy booklet called Honeytime Anytime, available on request via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
