Tear lettuce for salad
Help set table
Let children help in planning the meals
Take children grocery shopping at the store or farmer’s market
Add healthy foods when you can (i.e. broccoli to mac and cheese)
Don’t buy food you don’t want (you or) your children to eat
Make meals fun
Use cookie cutters for varying shapes
Offer “taco night” model meals

Keep healthy snacks convenient and accessible
Eat meals as a family
