Feed properly to a small, it is a part of healthy habit that will surely last for life, so it is important from an early age, teach them to choose and give them a proper diet. Between 5 and 6, it is time to teach them to recognize healthy foods, because if we expect to grow more, we rarely change bad eating habits.
The secret lies in the variety, vegetables, fruits, meats and different flavors, associating them with healthy food, a plate of vegetables every other day is good for the plants are not absent from their diet, the right thing is not to fall always in the same foods, so that the child did not take idea, and end up not wanting to eat more.
The example is the base, remember that children mimic everything we do, therefore we eat healthy, is part of their own choices of course, it is very common to find children who say, if their mom does not like such food, either, we must avoid associating their tastes and preferences with us.
If any food does not like, must be respected, but not the same as the child does not like spinach or chard, to not eat any plant, since then the food becomes a fad uncontrollable have to get used to eating what is in house, and that does not always have the choice, and teach him to prefer foods that likes both in its light versions, low in calories, excess of fat-free, or without sugar.
