Tips from our team!

Discovering healthy eating doesn’t mean learning that there are “good” foods and “bad” foods. It means discovering different foods and developing a sense of taste in a fun and enjoyable way!

Help children develop healthy eating habits through positive experiences. This entails talking about food in a positive way and focusing on nutritious foods. When talking about less nutritious foods, avoid labelling them in a negative way (e.g., junk food, crap, garbage )!
