Eight Ways to Improve Your Child's Diet

Read food labels with them so they know what's healthful and what's not.

Stock your refrigerator and pantry with healthful snacks, such as carrot sticks, celery sticks, and fresh fruit.

Encourage them not to exchange lunches with other students at school.

Plan family meals for times when you can all sit down together and eat.

Serve them age-appropriate portions and encourage them not to over-eat.

Prepare a variety of foods.

Eat a healthful diet yourself.
