Be a good example. You can't put broccoli in front of your kids while you are having McDonald's. So, be a good example and also don't make it a chore. Make it normal. We always have broccoli and asparagus for dinner and a salad. We buy whole grain bread exclusively. They don't need wonder bread when you are having whole wheat because you need more fiber. They need more fiber too. They don't get French fires. They get a baked potato. They need to eat real food, too. Be a good example and make sure they get plenty of it. They get treats, but again it's a treat. Make sure they get enough food during the day so that their blood sugar stays stable just like we need to try to do. And, make sure snacks are healthy things instead of candies, cookies and hot dogs. I never understood that. The kids are going to have a hot dog while, as mom, I am watching my weight and have grilled chicken breast and some greens. Let the kids have chicken breast and greens. That's a great nutritious meal. French fries should be a treat once in a while.
