Enjoy vegetables as a healthy snack!

Children need help in learning which foods are healthy for their bodies. Many children identify foods by taste. If a food tastes good it must be good for you!

However, some foods that taste good are not very healthy for our bodies. So choose foods that taste good and are also good for you! Healthy foods include fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and low-fat dairy products.
