Make sure your child eats breakfast. Breakfast provides children with the energy they need to listen and learn in school Do not be too strict. In small amounts, sweets or food from fast-food restaurants can still have a place in a healthy diet Have family meals together and serve everyone the same thing Involve your child in planning and preparing meals. Children may be more willing to eat the dishes they help fix Choose and prepare foods with less salt. Keep the salt shaker off the table. Have fruits and vegetables on hand for snacks instead of salty snack foods Help Your Child Eat Better Limit the amount of added sugar in your child’s diet. Choose cereals with low or no added sugar. Serve water or low-fat milk more often than sugar-sweetened sodas and fruit-flavored drinks Cook with less fat—bake, roast, or poach foods instead of frying Let your child decide whether and how much to eat. Keep serving new foods even if your child does not eat them at first. Serve snacks like dried fruit, low-fat yogurt, and air-popped popcorn Offer your child a wide variety of foods, such as grains, vegetables and fruits, low-fat dairy products, and lean meat or beans Give your child a snack or two in addition to his or her three daily meals Source: Weight-control Information Network, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, National Institutes of Health. www.win.niddk.nih.gov Help Your Child Eat Better
