Best Practice: Serve fruits or vegetables at every meal, eat meals family-style whenever possible, and don’t serve fried or pre-fried foods.


Child care providers and parents play a key role in helping children make healthy food choices. Children who are offered fruits, vegetables and other healthy food choice at a early age continue to enjoy these foods when they become adults.
