Healthy Tips For Children

DO teach your kids to be intuitive eaters. Help them develop the skills to eat when hungry and stop when full. And don’t give them external reasons to eat — because Mom and Dad said so, or because of what time it is or isn’t.

DO focus on the entire family at mealtimes; e.g., don’t single out your overweight child.

DON’T allow distracted eating. That means a tech-free zone at the dinner table.
DO promote activity for the whole family.
DON’T use food as a reward.
DON’Tcategorize foods as “good,” “bad” or “forbidden.”
