Eating Habits
Every time I see something sweet, I eat it. How can I remind myself to eat healthy foods?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
That's a great goal! Talk to your parents about having plenty of healthy foods at home and clearing your cabinets and refrigerator of sweets with little nutritional value. If you spot a bowl of fruit on the table instead of a bag of cookies, you'll probably be happy to grab an apple or a banana to eat. You could also ask your parents to help you choose a few healthy treats to carry in your backpack or purse so that you'll always have a healthy choice on hand when you feel hungry.

Best wishes,
