The Develop Healthy Eating Habits template will help parents start their child, aged 9 to 13 years, learning and continuing healthy eating practices. In this age range, media, friends and visual cues can very easily influence children. Children need to be taught what is in fact healthy and they require a helping hand that will lead them in the right direction. This template will do just that by presenting them with foods that will give them the nutrition they need to continue to develop into young healthy adults. This template will ensure that children receive the calories and nutritional intake they need, according to gender, age and activity level, for proper development. Not only will the child adopt good eating habits but parents will become aware of how to encourage healthy eating habits for life. This template fits all of that into a 7-day plan that encourages and teaches children to try a variety of healthy and tasty foods that are good sources of fiber, provide essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and contain no added sugars. This template is built around three meals and two snacks per day to fit childrenÆs school schedule. Lunches are planned so that they can be packed for school and dinners were created so they can be enjoyed with the whole family.
