The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions:
- Offer nutritional snacks, such as whole-grain crackers and low-fat cheese, veggies with a salsa or slices of fresh fruit with low-fat yogurt.
- Avoid giving children sugary juice or soda. Instead, offer water, low-fat milk or 100 percent fruit juice.
- Offer a protein-laden food with every meal, such as beans, low-fat dairy products, meat, whole grains and vegetables.
