Health Tip: Teach Kids About Smart Snacking11/12/12
(HealthDay News) -- Kids may be inclined to opt for junk food
over fresh fruit.
That's where parents and guardians come in, says the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics.
Here are the academy's suggestions for steering your children
toward healthier snack options:
- Place fresh fruit out in the open where your kids can see and
- 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.
