- Ditch the sugary drinks. Encourage water, not soda, sports drinks or juice.
- Limit sweet treats. Serve plenty of colorful fruit and veggies instead.
- Take the focus off food by planning more activities.
- Create a scavenger hunt, do arts and crafts, have a dance party or enjoy extra playground time.
