Getting the Kids to Eat Right

Q: How do I get my kids to eat healthier? They turn their noses up at anything that's good for them.

A: Encourage them to try lots of different things! It usually took about five to eight tries before I found healthy meals that my girls liked! Don't worry — as they grow up, their palates will develop. But for now it's a good idea to make a list of fun, healthy snacks that they can enjoy. For a yummy fruit dip, combine one cup of applesauce with one cup of low-fat flavored yogurt and serve with sliced strawberries, apples, bananas, pineapple, or grapes. You should also get your kids interested in fitness — it's important to get them eating right and exercising at an early age!
