Make it Fun and Exciting

How do you get kids to eat healthy?  Make it fun and exciting for them,  My wife is a genius.  She found at the dollar store some reusable containers with compartments for different types of food.  She gives each kid a sandwich, fruit, and a vegetable. 

The kids love this.  Before she takes them out for the day, she asks them which fruit and vegetable they want.  They feel part of the decision.   Over the weekend, the kids asked for cucumber and apple as we heading to the park.  They each got half and finished everything,

It is very easy to teach kids to make correct choices, but being creative does not hurt either.
