And Avoid Issues With Their Weight

It may be difficult to keep your children at a healthy weight. Experts say the best way is to offer them healthy foods and drinks, and to set a good example yourself.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests how parents should teach kids about healthy eating:

  • Feed your child a healthy, nutritious and balanced diet, including lots of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Be sure to include an appropriate number of calories, based on the child's age.
  • Limit sugary drinks to no more than one serving per day. Encourage your children to drink water.
  • Make healthy eating a family habit. Eat meals together at the table, and turn off the TV at meal time.
  • Don't push your children to eat when not hungry or to finish all the food on the plate; let your children eat slowly and stop eating when they start to feel full.
  • Offer your children rewards other than food.
  • Limit fast-food meals.

  1. Good post here. If more people, let alone parents, were to follow these simple instructions obesity would not be as big a problem. I'm especially fond of the tip of offering rewards other than food to your child other than food, that is gold!
