By Peter Chubb - Jun 16, 2011

Parents do all they can to keep their children safe, such as teaching them road safety to being smart when it comes to talking to strangers. For the most part we all do great jobs, but then there is the issue with health. How many of you just give them junk food and then bury your head in the sand as to the consequences?

However, it is not too late to change things and by using your smartphone you can make things fun as well. So teaching kids to cook with apps, the healthy way has to be the ideal solution.

Remember that you have to get them in the kitchen first, so you should start them off slowly with the “Fun Recipes For Your Kids” iOS app. Not only will it be nice to show them how to cook simple dishes, but also spending quality time with them is priceless – well in theory anyway. The recipes are easy to follow, so kids should not get bored.

The next app is for children and adults and is called “Healthy Recipes: Cooking for Fast Weight Loss” You are best to show your kids this one once they start to enjoy eating healthily, as it is all about conditioning. In this app you will find videos that will show you the best way to cook healthy food, as well as all the ingredients that you need. Taking the little ones shopping could be seen as a fun activity – again this is great in theory.

The final step has to be the “Healthy Kids” app for the iPhone and other iOS devices. This is a great way to teach your kids how to eat better, such as fruits and vegetables. Also with this app you can teach kids eating different colored foods likes fruits and vegetables will make them grow to be strong and healthy.

There are some cases where trying to eat healthy becomes tough, such as on a cruise. However, we have some great advice that should allow you to not put any weight on.

We hope that these apps are of help to you, but try not to blame us if your kids rebel against the ideas.
