Healthy Children - February 2012

 

Meal Deal

Eating good food with others brings joy to life. Sharing mealtime with children creates close bonds and lifelong memories. At family meals children learn about healthful eating by watching others.

To help our family enjoy eating together, I will:

  • Serve meals and snacks at regular times.
  • Offer my child healthy foods and drinks.
  • Help my child come to the table for meals and snacks.
  • Make mealtimes happy times when we talk with each other and laugh together.
  • Let my child choose what foods and how much to eat.
