That's where parents and guardians come in, says the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Here are the academy's suggestions for steering your children toward healthier snack options:
- Place fresh fruit out in the open where your kids can see and reach it.
- Store these foods in see-through containers.
- Ask your child to create a list of his or her favorite healthy foods. Then fill the list at the grocery store.
- Stock the pantry and refrigerator with snack-size, portable containers of peanut butter, milk, nuts or raisins.
