Your child’s health is the most important thing she has! When your child is healthy, she is ready to learn. There is a lot you as a parent can do to keep it that way such as having regular times for meals and snacks so that your child will grow up eating on a healthy schedule. Eat healthy foods yourself as an example for your child. Make eating healthy foods fun. Offer your child fruit as a snack. You can freeze fruit juice cubes for a treat, or make cookies sweetened with honey rather than sugar. Children who eat too many sugars and fats are likelier to develop health problems later.
