  • It's not always easy but try to eat most meals at the dinner table away from distractions such as TV or other electronic screens.

  • Try to buy juice with no added sugar and limit by half to one cup per day for young children.

  • Larger serve sizes may be needed for children who are taller or more active.

  • We know how hard it can be, but children are less likely to eat when there is pressure, force or bribery.

  • Avoid overfilling your child's plate. You'll waste less food and they won't overeat. Besides... they can always ask for seconds!
