Tips for Parents

 

  • Make sure your child eats breakfast. Breakfast provides children with the energy they need to listen and learn in school.
  • Offer your child a wide variety of foods, such as grains, vegetables and fruits, low-fat dairy products, and lean meats or beans.
  • Talk to your health care provider if you are concerned about your childís eating habits or weight.
  • Cook with less fatóbake, roast, or poach foods instead of frying.
  • Limit the amount of added sugar in your childís diet. Serve water or low-fat milk more often than sugar-sweetened sodas and fruit-flavored drinks.
  • Involve your child in planning and preparing meals. Children may be more willing to eat the dishes they help fix.
  • Be a role model for your children. If they see you being physically active and having fun, they are more likely to be active and stay active throughout their lives.
  • Encourage your child to be active every day.
