Be Creative with Produce Stickers

Lil Tip: Produce Stickers

Many parents are desperate to get their children to eat healthier meals. I learned a quick tip from our friends at FitSugar that will be fun and rewarding for both parents and kiddos.

You know those pesky stickers that are on your produce, the ones that sometimes sneak their ways onto your plates and meals? Use them as rewards. When your tot eats a banana or an apple, peel the sticker from the fruit and place it on your babe's hand showing them that healthy options are yummy and provide a little fun. Soon enough, they'll be sporting the tomato, bell pepper, squash, and orange tags all over their arms.

My mom let me have a sticker collection on the inside door of one of the cabinets for produce stickers. Not sure if it motivated me or not, but I guess it could work that way.

I remember this would get me to eat fruit! Although I don't think I was rewarded with the stickers...I just thought the whole thing was much funnier when there were stickers involved :)

my kids eat healthy food because that is what is available and they enjoy it. not a big fan of rewarding kids for eating. sounds like the beginnings of an eating disorder.

I have to agree with citizenkane. I don't think a produce sticker would do anything. FYI, I know those produce stickers are annoying, but cashiers use the number on them to ring them up on the register. I used to work for a grocery store. lol!

I can't see how the Dole sticker would make a kid eat a banana...but whatever.
