Be a healthy role model for children: TIP for setting good examples

You are the most important influence on your child. You can do many things to help your children develop healthy eating habits for life. Show by example. Eat vegetables, fruits, and whole grains with meals or as snacks. Let your child see that you like to munch on raw vegetables. You can also limit screen time. Allow no more than 2 hours a day of screen time like TV and computer games. Get up and move during commercials to get some physical activity.
