– Make or keep a wide variety of healthy foods ready at home to be eaten as snacks. Do allow occasional indulgence of chips, colas, and cookies.

– Eating slowly helps to detect hunger and fullness better. Encourage your child to eat slowly.



– Eating meals together with family helps children. Meal time with family can be pleasant with free flowing, light-hearted conversations about the day, etc.

– Activities like shopping for food and preparing meals are a fun time for children. Both parents and children learn about each other’s food preferences and enjoy the time spent together.
