What's for dinner: Set the example of good eating with yourself, what is in your refrigerator and cupboards, what you make available to your family. First steps may include, less fatty snacks, more fresh veggies, washed and cut and easy for the kids to grab when grazing for munchies. Talk about nutrition, appetite, and how to seek information from food labels. Make it fun.
