Teach kids about smart snacking
(HealthDay News) -- Kids may be inclined to opt for junk food over fresh fruit.
That's where parents and guardians come in.
Here are suggestions for steering your children toward healthier snack options:
- Place fresh fruit out in the open where your kids can see and reach it.
- Store these foods in see-through containers.
- Ask your child to create a list of his or her favorite healthy foods. Then fill the list at the grocery store.
- Stock the pantry and refrigerator with snack-size, portable containers of peanut butter, milk, nuts or raisins.
