Page 2 Children know their bodies Use a child‟s appetite to guide how much food they need for activity and growth. Don‟t try and force children to finish their plate or give sweets/dessert as rewards as this may lead to overeating problems later on. Instead offer a variety of healthy foods consistently. Children do not eat the same amount of food every day and the amount of food a child may need depends on what else has been eaten during the day.
