Feed­ing kids

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FEATURES -

There are se­crets to feed­ing chil­dren. Here are some tips: 1. Make it a rou­tine. Of­fer your kids healthy meals and snacks at sched­uled times through­out the day. 2. Make food the fo­cus. Turn off the TV and put away toys dur­ing meal time. Chil­dren eat bet­ter with­out these dis­trac­tions. 3. Don’t force-feed. Let your kids de­cide how much they want to eat. 4. Lead by ex­am­ple. Your chil­dren are more likely to try new foods if you eat them too. 5. Build a healthy meal us­ing the Eat Well Plate. It’s avail­able at http://www.healthy­cana­di­ans.gc.ca.
