Helping children eat healthier is all about simplicity. Kids have sensitive taste buds.

Try giving children fruit with cereal and milk for breakfast, fruit for snacks, and healthy bread and cheese for lunch.

For dinner, have pasta, baked potatoes and raw vege or some just blanched. There's no need to fry any food you cook for your kids when you can bake or grill.

Instead of sugar-laden juices, serve up water with a touch of lime.

Treats are great but they are just that - treats - they're not for everyday. 

Try to stay away from convenience food, it seems easy but is not healthy at all.
