Helpful Hints

  • Plan ahead. Make a shopping list of recipe ingredients before you go to the store.
  • Make a goal to include at least one fruit or vegetable with every meal and snack.
  • Offer new fruits and vegetables several times. Prepare them in different ways (raw vs. cooked, chopped vs. whole) to find the way your child likes them best.
  • Get cooking with your kids. It saves time and can be fun for all.
