    I find that if I leave healthy snacks out and ready to eat, the kids will munch on them without even thinking about it. I use my apple slicer and leave the apple pieces out ready to grab and I cut up carrots and place them in a bowl of water so they don’t dry out. My kids eat healthy just like their parents! Which is also another important factor, you have to be a good role model for your kids.

    We try to keep healthy snacks on hand, like fruit, sunflower seeds, and raisins. The kids know they’ll have more success asking me for a healthy snack than a sugary one.

    My son is 19 months old and so far I’ve really only offered him good healthy and mostly natural foods. The most important thing I think that I’ve done is to offer him whole grain breads. I’ve started making my own and I know it’s so much healthier than all that store bought stuff.

    We try to make all of the good for you food exciting: broccoli are trees, chicken in any form is called a nugget, and if all else fails it is Elmo’s favorite food. That usually gets our daughter to at least try something. Also, bunnies eat carrots, out kitty loves salmon, so she wants to try it too!

    I make sure fresh fruit and vegetables are available as a healthy alternative to junk food snacks.

    One thing I do is decrease the amount of sugar they receive. Healthier snacks. And many sugar free drinks.

    I have my children eat a variety of new fresh vegetables, whether opr not they like it or not.

    My kids always eat healthly food. I’m the junk food eater in the house.
