      I think the best thing to do is to model healthy eating and “make it look good.” I also always discuss healthy foods as “foods that make your brain smarter and your body stronger” and junk foods as offering no real benefits. We also do smoothies, soups, fruit bowls, try new veggies often, and more.

      You don’t have to convince them, you just need to build their habit to eat healthy food.

      avoid buying what you do not need and eventually they will eat what is available

      tell them it’s yummy, not healthy

      I figure as lonh as my children eat SOMETHING healthy in each meal then that is a step in the right direction. They are children so I definitely don’t expect them to be perfect.

      Kids learn to love sugar at a young age, you have to monitor processed sugar intake. Sugar, salt, and oil are highly addictive.

      I always have them eat what my husband and I are eating. They adapt so well and I don’t give them options like having mac and cheese.

      I always sneak it in. Look on Pinterest for ways to sneak in veggies into food. There are so many options these days to help with this like plant based pasta or green “monster juice” smoothies.

      Always offer healthy options. I just make sure we st least taste everything. My kids prefer vegetables whole and roasted plus they can help prep which makes them more likely to eat

      There should be foods that they like. Ex. Chicken Nuggets. Some companies add healthy ingredients to them so the kids get nutritional foods without their knowledge
