Avoid the Pizza Trap

March 4, 2015
By Gabrielle Welch , OVParent

Junk food is everywhere; it is hard to avoid in our culture. But there are three things parents can do to help their children build healthy eating habits for life:

1. Take ownership: What are you making more important than your kids, your most precious asset?

2. Provide structure: It's up to us as adults to teach kids how life works. We teach them about bullying and the health dangers of drugs and alcohol, so why aren't we teaching them about the health dangers of junk food?

3. Don't be a nutritional wimp: Don't be afraid to say "no." Food education is the key to health. You want your kids to be "streetwise" about everything that's a potential danger to them; this includes food!
