Kids are as interested in nutrition as adults, but they often know a lot less. Talking to your kids about some of the key ideas in nutrition, such as serving size, total calories, fat and salt can help them start to make better choices.

The Federal government’s food pyramid is a good place to start, since it outlines what kids should be eating each day.

Simple books, such as Eat This, Not That For Kids can show them the best and worst choices at their favorite restaurant, and give them more ideas about what their body needs to grow and thrive.
