The Role of Parents in Managing Family Nutritional Intake
Decide for child
The mother must have confidence in her and not to be unduly influenced by the media and her child, which is itself influenced by the media. This is the mother who must say what it considers good for the child. This concept is the opposite of what has been developing for twenty years when the child becomes the decision maker. Parents must regain their role as educators in regard to meals. Thus they allow the child to build his personality food.
Healthy foods available
Another important principle is to continuously provide the child with adequate food, including fruits and vegetables.
If on reserve family found only food too rich and too caloric, are those that children will eat. However, if available fruits and vegetables, in every day, the child will eat, and to the detriment of other Junk Food.
The food availability is very important. It is perceived today when, for example sweets and sodas are replaced by fruit and water fountains in schools.
