I used to think toddlers and preschoolers were the toughest crowd to feed: After all, 2- to 5-year-olds can be a picky and stubborn bunch especially when you’re serving healthy food. But as my own daughter has gotten older, I’ve realized that the school years are just as challenging‚ if not more so. Kids this age make many of their own food choices without you—they’re on their own at the school cafeteria, at camp, at a friend’s house so it’s even more important for them to genuinely enjoy healthy foods. That’s why I love this funky video “Unjunk Yourself!” produced by David Katz, M.D., director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center, in conjunction with Kidtribe. It features three of Dr. Katz’s kids. They’ve grown up since I worked on this story with the family and even since they helped to judge the Parents Snack Awards. Grab your kid and rock out!
