Get the children involved in the weekly menu:
1. Have a weekly meeting with your children about what they’d like to eat that week
2. Give them a few choices to choose from so that they don’t get overwhelmed.
3. Have them choose which protein, veggie, fruit, carb, and desert or snack they’ll have in their bag each day of the week.
4. Post up their choices on a sheet with their name on it so that everyone can see it.
5. Get them excited about the good choices they’ve made and praise them for taking care of their body.
This will certainly help them to feel powerful!
