Want to call a truce at those dinner-table battles? You can by taking a fresh approach in getting your children to eat well. Mix a little child psychology with creativity and you've got a recipe for good nutrition with less anxiety.
One last piece of advice: the old adage "breakfast is the most important meal" is still true. Kids need to re-fuel after not eating for up to 12 hours. "Studies show that children perform better in school if they've eaten a balanced breakfast," says Robinson. Today's breakfast foods are easier than ever to fix, even for grade-schoolers. Instant oatmeal, cereals and microwave pancakes will help get your youngsters get off to great start.
