Is your child eating well? Is he or she a picky diner? It’s important to make healthy meal choices for your child early on in their development. Lead by setting a good example for your child. Introducing a young child to fruits and vegetables as well as providing healthy menu options will encourage him or her to make good choices as they get older. Exercise and physical activity is equally important.
