Your child is at a key age to develop good eating and activity habits. Research shows that the average 3-year-old today consumes more calories and gets less exercise than 25 years ago. There are ways to reverse this trend:
- Stock up on healthy foods and snacks instead of junk foods. Steering clear of foods high in sugar also helps keep your child’s teeth healthy.
- Let your child decide when she’s full; don’t press her to finish every bite.
- Replace the toddler screen time (whether streaming, DVDs or video games) with more active pursuits, such as walking, dancing, jumping or throwing and kicking a ball.
