Do what you want the kids to do. You can't possibly enjoy unhealthy foods each day and dare them to go near it. Your kids watch whatever you do!

When you eat healthy foods and snacks, your kids will be convinced the ignored ones are bad and would not go near it. They would find it easier to resist outside the home.

But when you yourself eat these and tell them not to, they may actually feel you're trying to let them miss something and go on to try it.

Table manners!!!

Don't sleep while you're eating!
Sit properly on your chair!
Keep water beside you...

These and more are the numerous table manners that you can teach your children and monitor how well they observe it.

These tanle manners help the child to get stuck to a code of conduct he will always follow whenever he's eating, so, teach your child the table manners.

This is especially important for picky eaters or kids who won't eat no matter what.

Displaying a colorful set of good food is essential for stimulating the appetite and attracting your kids to the food.

When the food is attractive everyone would love it and want to have a taste. This way, you can turn your non eating stubborn kid into a glutton.

An example of how to make the food attractive is by mixing colors, for instance, green vegetables, red carrots, and other attractive intermixing of colors which am not very good at. This way, I'm sure everything will be win-win because you end up with a coorful mix of invaluable nutrients!

Encourage slow eating.

Your kids should be told that it is beneficial to eat slowly.

It takes minutes to send signals to the brain that the body is full. A too fast eating speed may cause the kids to overeat before actually knowing that they are already full.

Eating slowly will allow the body to detect when we're full, and send signals to the brain so the brain notifies you that you're full. This wil take up to fifteen minutes and if care is not taken, fast eating may cause overeating and obesity risks.
