What are the best foods for children to eat?


Q. What are the best foods children can eat in terms of health? What are the top vegetables children should be eating? What vegetables should children eat but typically don’t like?


A. All food groups provide key nutrients for optimal growth and development. Children should be offered a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, proteins, dairy, and whole-grains in order to get different vitamins, minerals and fiber. It’s important to offer healthy foods to children, but keep in mind that everyone’s taste is different. What one child eats another may not.
