Helping my kids make the best choices they can as far the food choices they make is always high on my priority list. I don’t like to give them any really bad options but i will of course throw some treats in that they are allowed to pick when all is right in the world. Getting them involved in the decisions of what they are having as well as getting them involved in the making or assembeling of their daily meals is sure way to expand their palletes and get them trying new healthy thing that wiil give them the energy they need to succeed in school.
