Replace at least half of the refined grains you may normally eat, such as pasta, bread and rice, with whole-grain foods. Serve whole-grain cereals and bread; these are high in fiber. Include quinoa, whole-wheat bread, oatmeal and brown rice in your family’s diet. Limit refined grains and try to eat more bran.


When it’s snack time, offer healthy alternatives such as pears, sliced apples and celery sticks or whole-grain bread served with peanut butter, low-fat cheese or soynut butter. Instead of cake or cookies, snack on unsweetened, fat-free yogurt or sugar-free ice pops. Choose fruits and vegetables instead of chips or French fries.


Involve your children in meal planning and preparation. Together you can cook large batches of stew or soup and freeze them as a time saver. This helps teach children healthy ways of cooking. Sit down and eat with your child. Family meals eaten together help you bond better. Don’t eat in front of the TV. Have everyone put their phones away so you can have a conversation.


Every small change in your family’s eating habits and physical activity can have a huge impact on your children’s health. Start by setting a good example with your own diet and food choices.

The more active your child is, the more calories he or she needs. Here are some ways to encourage your child to follow a nutritious diet:



Make sure half of what is on your child’s plate consists of fruits and vegetables. A fun, easy and tasty way to ensure your children are eating enough fruits and vegetables is to serve a variety of colors at each meal. For example, blueberries, carrots and red bell peppers are all different colors and they are all good for your overall health.
