Health Tip: Help Children Eat Healthier

Set a good example

(HealthDay News) -- Want to get kids to eat healthy foods? Start with eating a healthier diet yourself.

The American Council on Exercise offers these additional suggestions for encouraging children to eat healthier:

  • Eat together as a family as often as possible.
  • Continue to offer healthy foods even if they have been rejected in the past.
  • Let children choose their own portion sizes.
  • Don't reward eating a healthy food with an unhealthy food.
  • Don't pressure a child to eat.
  • Don't cook a special meal for a child who refuses to eat what has been prepared.
  • When you find a healthy food your child likes, looking for other healthy foods that are similar.
