Much of healthy eating is a matter of healthy habits. Return ParentingU guest Dr. Aimee Ferrell is joined by Lea Theriot, Pediatric Registered Dietician to talk about helping our kids be happy, healthy eaters. Many attitudes about healthy eating are formed in childhood, and our guests share tips for encouraging kids to try new things, get the nutrition growing kids need, and how parents can model positive behaviors themselves. If you are a parent that has questions about your child’s eating or if you need some new ideas, this is the ParentingU episode for you.

Some of the questions answered in this episode:

What is my ChooseMyPlate.gov and how can it help my family?

What activities can I do with my child to encourage healthy eating?

What is a “colorful plate” and how can I help my child eat more variety?

What are some ideas for healthy snacks?

What are good portion sizes for children?
