Maintaining a proper schedule for feeding breakfast, lunch and dinner to children can help to reduce fussy eating habits. When children eat on time, they are less likely to demand
junk food. Healthy eating habits can be inculcated in children by giving them meals as per the schedule. Along with providing meals on time, deciding what they should eat also matters. Foods from all groups must be included in their diet. They should always eat what is healthy but allowing them their favourite food once in a week is alright.

Physical Activities

Children must spend at least one hour every day in doing some kind of physical activity or the other. Not including any kind of physical activity in the routine of children can give rise to disorders like
obesity. On the other hand if children carryout some sort of physical activity or the other, they grow at a right pace. Physical activities provide a lot of other health benefits. Physical activities can include activities like cycling or playing or any kind of outdoor game.

Proper Screen Time

Some sort of entertainment can help children to get rejuvenated and refreshed. Therefore, it is alright to allow them a screen time of an hour. They can watch their favourite television show or an animation series. This time can also be utilised to show them some kind of educational videos or the other.

No Sugary and Oily Foods

Sugary drinks and foods as well as oily foods are one of the common food items that can cause health issues in children. Sugary foods and drinks can cause
dental cavities and carries. Too much of oily foods can give rise to problems like sore throat etc.  

Positive Stimulation
