      >When it comes to how parents can help their kids eat healthier, Fit Kids
      >offers these 10 tips:
      >
      >
      >1. Parents control the supply lines: You decide which foods to buy and
      >when to serve them.
      >
      >
      >2. Kids decide if and what to eat: From the foods you offer, kids get to
      >choose what they eat and whether to eat at all.
      >
      >
      >3. Quit the "clean plate club": Let your children stop eating when they
      >feel they've had enough.
      >
      >
      >4. Start them young: Food preferences are developed early in life, so
      >offer a variety of foods.
      >
      >
      >5. Rewrite the kids' menu: Who says kids only want to eat hot dogs, pizza,
      >burgers, and macaroni and cheese? Your children might surprise you with
      >their willingness to experiment with new foods.
      >
      >
      >6. Drink calories count: Soda and other sweetened drinks add extra
      >calories and get in the way of good nutrition.
      >
      >
      >7. Put sweets in their place: Occasional sweets are fine, but don't turn
      >dessert into the main reason for eating dinner.
      >
      >
      > 8. Food is not love: Find better ways to say "I love you."
      > 9. Kids do as you do: Be a role model and eat healthy yourself.
      >
      >10. Turn off the TV: You'll also turn off the advertising and mindless
      >snacking.
