  1. Hi, this post caught my attention on Twitter, because I recently wrote about this topic too, but with a slightly different angle. All your tips are great! Maybe I can add some “golden rules” to keep kids engaged and positive to eating: The parents responsibilities are to decide what to serve, cook it, make sure that it tastes good (from a child’s perspective) and that the meals are nice and a positive experience overall. They also decide on table manners that are acceptable. The children’s responsibility is to decide how much food he or she want to eat and if they want to eat. This way meals will never become power struggles. 🙂

    1. Those are great golden rules! Thanks so much for sharing them ! Avoiding a power struggle definitely seems to be the key to helping them develop those healthy habits. It’s about making them WANT to eat healthy food rather than forcing them to. Thank you !

  2. Great tips! I have some junk food obsessed kids but have been slowly changing what I buy for groceries so there are less junk options and more healthy.

  3. I love this! I’m going to try this. Ive one picky eater..another growing out of eating healthy..and one starting on solid foods. Thanks for the tips!

  4. These are great tips. We go to the library and check out kids cooking books. Them I let my kids choose a couple of recipes that we can make together.
