Teaching Kids to Eat Healthy Food

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Parents want their children to snack on high-quality foods instead of reaching for the junk. One way to do this, of course, is not to have the junk around. But if you keep a few indulgences, how can kids tell the difference without always asking you, “what’s there to eat” or “what can I have as a snack?”


Pull out your multi-colored pack of sticky notes and start labeling the foods. You can try a simple method of green means ‘go,’ so enjoy this food anytime; yellow means ‘caution,’ only eat once or twice a week; and pink/red means ‘once in a while.’ Your children, and also your partner, can quickly determine what foods make the best choices for good health.
