Hi, Here are some ways you can help support your child's healthy eating habits: Eat together as a family as often as possible. Keep family meals pleasant and positive. Avoid making comments about the amount or type of food your child eats. Pressure to eat actually reduces children's acceptance of new or different foods. Make healthy food choices for your family's meals. Children notice the choices you make and follow your example. Make meal times fairly predictable. Eat at around the same times every day and always at the table, even for snacks. Have meals often enough (for example, about every 3 hours for toddlers) that your child doesn't get too hungry. Do nothing else during the meal other than talking and enjoying each other—no TV or other distractions.
