In brief: Good nutrition
Healthy dietary habits begin in childhood, so it's great you are asking this question.
The best way to teach healthy habits is for you to model them yourself. Eat lots of vegetables and fruit. Find creative ways to bring a variety of veggies into the diet. Don't allow any trans fats. Eat vegetarian meals frequently. Grow a garden and use your own veggies. Have your kids plan and cook meals.
