HEALTHY EATING FOR A HEALTHY CHILD

A healthy child now can grow into a healthy adult of the future

  • Buy, prepare and offer the foods you would like your child to eat.
  • Keep offering healthy foods even if they are refused at first.
  • Include your child’s food choices in the family menu sometimes.
  • Act as a role model. Make sure your child sees you eating healthy foods.
  • Involve children in simple food preparation such as making a salad.
  • Let your child decide if they have had enough, even if food is left on their plate.
  • Encourage slow eating if yours is a family of fast eaters.
  • Help your child recognise if he or she eats when bored, sad or lonely. Try to suggest another activity to help distract them.
  • Try not to punish, reward or cheer your child up with food, as it establishes an unhealthy relationship with food.
  • Be active together. Let your child see you being active too.
  • Encourage lots of free playtime outside.
  • Try to use the car less. Walk or cycle to school, the shops or to a friend’s house.
  • Help your child find a balance between organised sport, fun activities and individual sports like swimming and dancing.
  • Be supportive and encouraging.
  • Motivate your children to be active
  • Limit sedentary activity like TV viewing, watching videos, playing personal screen games and using computers.
  • Avoid eating while the TV is on. This may be a distraction from family time together.
