Small kids never sit still, so in between mealtimes fuel them up with healthy snacks to give them extra energy.

Introducing healthy snacks can sometimes be difficult, but persevere. Gradually try new things to see what works. And if you can, get rid of any non-nuturient, junk food that’s in the pantry so that you don’t give in.

Sitting down with the kids and eating with them will also help as they’re often more inclined to eat what you’re eating, and don’t want to miss out.
