Does every mealtime turn into a fight between you and your children over the foods they eat? Amidst all the unhealthy temptations your kids are exposed to, it makes sense that you are facing an uphill battle when you try to teach healthy eating habits. But it can be done! Below, some real moms provide tried-and-true suggestions on how to encourage healthy eating habits in your children.

Groom Your Own Celebrity Chef 
My daughter and I attend a weekly young kids' cooking class. The classes focus on making nutritious and easy, yet fun, recipes. When my daughter gets to do the prep work and the cooking, then she wants to eat the food! We also take the recipes home and make them again later. Sometimes we invite a friend over for a "cooking" play date, in which the kids again use the healthy recipes, play chefs and prepare the family dinner (with some supervision, of course!).
