Is your daughter always hungry? – Nutrilicious

Does this happen in your house?? You prepare a nice meal for everyone, clear the table, load the dishwasher and clean everything up only to have your daughter come back to the kitchen an hour later to make a ‘snack’ because she is hungry. I remember my mother telling me that the kitchen was ‘closed’ after she finished cleaning up from a meal.

It drives me crazy when my kids prepare something to eat after I have cleaned everything up. How many times can I tell them to make sure they eat a proper meal at supper so they aren’t hungry an hour later? Unfortunately, I have a hard time saying no when they say there are hungry. Can you say no to your kids when they tell you they are hungry?

How can they possibly be hungry when they just ate not even 2 hours before? Here are a few reasons why your daughter may be hungry after a meal:

  1. She did not eat a well balanced meal – For meals to be filling and satiating they need to contain all three macronutrients; carbohydrates, protein and fat. For example – tofu (protein) with vegetables and rice (carbohydrates) in a peanut sauce (fat).
  2. She did not eat enough – Some kids get bored and distracted while they eat and don’t eat enough to fill themselves up. Make sure phones do not come to the table during meal time.
  3. She didn’t eat real food – Real, whole foods contain nutrients that help stabilize blood sugar ensuring she feels full for a few hours. This means no chips or chocolate bars but nuts, seeds and good quality granola bars.
  4. She didn’t eat good quality plant-based protein like beans, tofu, nuts or seeds.  Veggie dogs and veggie meats are okay once in a while but they don’t always have the best ingredients. And they are usually high in salt.Some kids just need to refuel more often than others but making sure she is getting the right amount of nutrients with each meal will help support her growing body.For more information about vegetarian diets, tips and tricks sign up for my newsletter.

I have designed this program in 4 Modules each delivered to you by email each Monday for 4 weeks.

1. Setting yourself up for success – stocking a vegetarian-friendly pantry, shopping tips, tools and tricks

This is where we need to start because I know you struggle to find healthy food for your daughter to eat.
In this module we’ll put these worries to rest:

  • Transitioning to a vegetarian diet
  • Navigating the grocery store to choose vegetarian-friendly food
  • Stocking a vegetarian-friendly pantry
  • Reading labels to check for animal ingredients
  • Snacking the healthy way


2. Choosing meatless protein – what are your options, how to prepare them

Does daughter seem tired all the time? Could be she isn’t get enough good-quality protein. This can sometimes be a challenge for those new to vegetarian diets. Getting this right straight from the start will ensure success on her vegetarian journey. Here’s what we will talk about in this module:

  • Tofu isn’t a scary word and how to include it in meals your daughter will eat.
  • Other vegetarian protein options and what to do with them.
  • The role of processed fake meat.
  • Easy ways to add meatless protein to meals


3. Essential nutrients

As if you didn’t have enough to worry about there are other nutrients that don’t naturally appear in vegetarian foods or may be difficult to obtain through vegetarian foods. You don’t want your daughter taking dozens of supplements each morning because she probably can’t even swallow a pill.  In this module we’ll discuss the following:

  • Iron deficiency is very common amongst teenage girls and eating the right foods can help reduce this risk.
  • Calcium is important for her growing bones and to minimize her risk for osteoporosis later in life.
  • B12 deficiency may have serious long-term side effects.
  • Vitamin D plays so many important roles in the body so getting enough is super important.
  • Good fats, we all need fat in our diet and good fat is important.


4. Baking without animal ingredients and eating out

Yes, desserts can still be part of a healthy diet and eating out shouldn’t be a challenge. In this module we’ll cover the following:

  • Baking without butter or milk, yes it is possible.
  • How to navigate restaurant menus.
  • Eating out and being invited for dinner, will your daughter just eat salad and side dishes.
