What is a healthy diet to follow daily?

Same as everywhere: Eliminate juices, sodas, or other sweet drinks. Drink water. Don't eat fried foods (chicken nuggets, french fries etc). Watch the sugar content in cereals and snacks. Serve few starches, including breads, pastas, and (white) grains. Add more vegetables and fruits, but not too many fruits because of all the sugar they contain.
