While we are cooped up at home, the temptation for treats is stronger for both ourselves and our children. Don’t cut out treat foods completely, a little now and then is okay.
Follow the simple tips below to make this process a bit easier:
- try not to keep a large supply of treats at home, this just adds to the temptation. The shops will remain open so you don’t need to stockpile
- make sure there are plenty of healthy snacks available, such as fruit, veg, cheese, nuts, and yoghurt
- don’t be afraid to say no to giving your kids treats. Find other ways of rewarding them, such as playing a game with them, allowing them to Skype or call a friend, or allowing them to choose a movie to watch.
