Eating breakfast as simple as a banana and a glass of milk is enough to be a quick-start for energy supply during the day. If you can get your kids stick with a good breakfast habit, they will stick by it as they grow older.
- Choose the healthy snack
Kids love to snack on something, especially something sweet. As a parent, you have the control over what they eat. Try to replace the chips and chocolates with healthier snacks such as unsalted nuts, fruit, and unsweetened yogurt.
- Drink water
Try to make water as your kid’s main drink for a meal. Juices are nice, but you can make them as the occasional treats for kids. When your kiddos are thirsty, go with the water first.

Kids tend to follow what their parents or older siblings do. When you are trying to teach them to eat healthily, be the best example possible. Don’t drink soda in front of them, eat your healthy meals, and doing fun exercise and physical activities with them.
Kids are the small creatures that you can shape them based on what you want them to be. If you are successful teaching them a healthy habit, they will get used to it as they grow. Tell your kids, I say hi.
