Dos and Don’ts When Dining Out with Your Preschooler

Review Average: 3 stars

For preschoolers, ages 3 to 5, the meals may be small but there are big lessons to learn about lifelong healthy dining habits.


Set an Extra Plate

Review Average: 4.5 stars

It may sound counterintuitive, but if you'd like to help your child become a better eater invite one of their friends to dinner.


The Family Table

Review Average: 3.5 stars

Research shows that family meals promote healthier eating – more fruits, vegetables and fiber; less fried food; often fewer calories. And they do far more than put healthful food on the table.


Coping With Picky Eating Phases

Review Average: 5 stars

Every parent of a young child has been through the pain of a picky eating phase. Between the ages of one and 3, they are expressing independence about everything, including food.
