2. Get your child involved in cooking
A sure fire way to get your child to eat healthy food is to find out what they like and how they like it prepared. Involve them in the entire process of cooking, from making the shopping list, selecting ingredients, and, of course, the preparation of the dish itself. While little ones will be more comfortable with simple dishes such as pasta with vegetable sauce or fruit salad, try to encourage older children to experiment with their favorite ingredients and styles of food.
