Offer Fresh Vegetables
At dinnertime, when many children are exhausted, cranky and hungry, put out a plate of raw vegetables. "They don't even know what they are eating at that point—they are noshing," Tanya says. "Then you give them dinner, then you give them fresh fruit and then you give them dessert. That way you know they've gotten their five-a-day fruits and vegetables."
