(HealthDay News) -- Fostering healthy habits when your children are young is a great way to help ensure that they'll eat healthier for the rest of their lives.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • Preparing a balanced, healthy breakfast each morning.
  • Limiting caffeine, and not adding cream or sugar to coffee or tea.
  • Packing a healthy lunch.
  • Eating more fruits and vegetables.
  • Cooking dinner at home most nights of the week. If necessary, cook some meals during weekends.
