Tips for Promoting Healthful Eating for Your Kids

  • Start the day right by ensuring your child eats a healthful breakfast
  • Eat meals together as a family as often as possible
  • Carefully cut down on the amount of bad fats and empty calories in your family’s diet
  • Don’t place your child on a restrictive diet—instead focus on a healthful breakfast, limiting snacking, and stocking your home with fruits, vegetables, protein bars, and other healthful choices
  • Avoid using food as a reward or withholding food as punishment
  • Encourage your children to drink water and to limit the intake of beverages with added sugars, such as soft drinks and fruit-juice drinks
  • Stock the refrigerator with fat-free or low-fat milk, and fresh fruits and vegetables instead of soft drinks or snacks that are high in fat, calories, and added sugars, and low in essential nutrients
  • Aim to have your child eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day
  • Discourage eating meals or snacks while watching television
