How Halloween Can Boost Your Child's Relationship With Food

Instead of stressing about the candy overload, use it as a teaching tool for healthy and balanced eating

by: Sarah Remmer, RD

As much as you feel the need to play "treat police" this Halloween, try not to. It's no fun for you as parents, and it takes the joy out of Halloween for your kids. Instead, take advantage of this holiday by using it as a teaching tool for healthy and balanced eating habits—an excuse to actually improve your child's long-term relationship with food.

7 Foods Dietitians Won't Feed Their Kids

Processed foods that most nutrition experts won't feed their kids, and what to offer instead

by: Sarah Remmer, RD

I'm not one to deny my kids a tasty treat, and I certainly don't make any food "forbidden," but there are some convenience foods that I don't buy for my kids, mostly because the ingredients list is a mile long, full of sugar, artificial flavours and colours, preservatives, fillers, and other chemicals. When it comes to feeding my kids, my number one priority is that they eat real food, not food-like items (most of the time).
