Food & Nutrition

  • Want to eat healthy and stay active? There is no better way than doing this together as a family. Be healthy and encourage your kids to do the same.

    Your kids learn from watching you. Eat fruits and veggies and your kids will too!

  • Basket of veggies

  • Use these tips to eat healthy with your family:

    • Serve fruits and vegetables with every meal.
    • Suggest, but do not force, your child to take a bite. Give lots of praise for trying new food.
    • Kids learn to like foods they see and taste more than once. Ask your child to try a new food more than once, but remember that tasting new foods is their choice! Make trying new foods a positive and fun thing for your child. Plus, ask your kids to describe the new foods while they taste it. Are they sweet or sour? Crunchy or soft?
    • If you food shop with your child, ask him or her to pick out a new fruit or vegetable to try at home.
    • Make dinner time family time. Turn off the TV or computer and talk about your day.
