Try to build healthy eating habits from early on. This is the way to a long life, free of disease. What else do you want for your kids?
Kid friendly meals should pave the way towards healthy eating. A healthy diet requires at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. This is difficult to implement, even if kid size portions are small, as children would rather eat sweets and salty snacks than carrots, not to mention Brussels sprouts. That is why fruit is the easy way to healthy eating.
