There are so many food-related issues that concern all of us, from taste to calories. It comes as no surprise that there is far too much obesity in Western culture, especially among children.
Like adults, children need to eat a variety of foods from different food groups to get all the nutrients necessary for growth and good health. And don’t forget: your children are influenced by your eating habits and you can help develop healthy eating habits by keeping on hand a wide variety of foods in the forms your child prefers.

Here are some tips to help you and your kids have a healthier life:
- Make a list of all of the healthy foods your children would be willing to eat and buy them. You eat the food you have on hand. You can make an extra large smoothie or batch of soup and store away the leftovers to eat another day.
- Avoid foods that are advertised as “diet” or “fat-free.” They probably contain artificial ingredients.
- Plan the meals in advance. Avoid getting into a situation where you have no time, energy or ability to give your children access to healthy foods.
- Don’t allow your kids to eat just because they’re bored, sad, lonely, low-energy, angry, stressed out or want some kind of taste sensation.
Once your children start eating healthy on a regular basis it will become easier to continue eating healthy.
