How Can I Get My Children to Eat Healthier Foods?

Routinely offer your children as many new foods as possible. Try different types of foods and vary preparation methods—raw, roasted, steamed or microwaved. Also try these tips: 

  • Involve your children in grocery shopping and meal preparation.
  • Talk to your children while you're preparing the food: "Now we're adding the tomatoes…"
  • Encourage your children to look through cookbooks or recipes online.
  • Set a good example by eating healthy foods yourself.
