The Perfect Recipe to Make Kids Eat Healthy.
There are many challenges to being a parent - educating your kids, teaching them good values, ensuring that they will have a good future and so and so forth. However, one of the most enigmatic tasks that parents have tried to figure out is how to make their children eat healthy.
Trailblazing entrepreneur Candy Hwang also faced the same dilemma. And as serendipity may have brought it, she found the solution in her own business - Healthy Shabu Shabu Restaurant.
"As parents, the health of our children is a prime responsibility. Letting them prepare their own food is a good experience that instills in them some of the basics of good nutrition. We can teach them about balanced eating, high and low calorie meals, low-cholesterol foods, nutritious yet tasty meals," says Candy.
This was the inspiration behind "Nutrilicious Kids", an event that aimed to inculcate healthy eating into the lifestyle of children by allowing them to prepare their own meal. The event hoped to make kids understand the value of proper nutrition through a fun and enjoyable experience.
As a cook-your-own and interactive way of dining, Healthy Shabu Shabu makes it easier for kids to engage in healthy eating because there is an element of play that goes into it. Allowing them to prepare their own meal helps children learn to make better decisions about the food they eat. And since Healthy Shabu Shabu restaurants uses the freshest and finest ingredients, parents are assured that their tots are getting maximum nutritional value.
Aside from these health benefits, kids also get a host of other advantages from preparing their own food. Children learn about math by measuring the ingredients; time by knowing how long their food should be cooked; logic by being aware of the order the ingredients should be placed in the pot; and science as they learn hot and cold, floating and sinking, solid from liquid. It also enhances their creativity as they tailor fit their shabu shabu to their taste. And most importantly, it provides a meaningful venue for parents and their kids to bond while enjoying a good meal.
Parents who want to bring their children to Healthy Shabu Shabu don't need to fear about safety. Healthy Shabu Shabu uses electric stoves controlled by a remote instead of traditional LPGs. The stove and cords are neatly tucked-away which makes dining in Healthy Shabu Shabu safe enough even for children.
Most children learn quickly that eating is fun. And with the help of pioneering dining destinations like Healthy Shabu Shabu, they are very well on their way to realize that healthy eating, too, can be an enjoyable experience.
