Parents trying to get their kids to eat fruits and vegetables can set the example by eating healthy themselves.

The key is to introduce children to these foods early on, according to dietitians.

Parents can add greens to a child’s diet as soon as they start eating solid foods, and make them more enticing by letting kids choose the type of fruit or vegetable and how it’s prepared.

However, going without means missing out on key vitamins and nutrients.
