Getting your kids to eat healthy begins with your personal diet. Be sure to eat right, avoid take-out foods, prepackaged foods and foods loaded with preservatives.
It is good to remember that your kids will watch what you eat and will desire what you eat. Once you have improved your diet and have engaged in a healthy regimen of eating fresh foods, your kids will follow in your personal eating habits.
Teaching your kids to prepare foods as simple as stuffing celery with cheese or peanut butter provides your kids with alternative fun in the kitchen and a nutritional choice that they can determine on their own.
