If you plan for these, your child’s diet will be much more balanced and he’ll be less cranky, because he won’t be famished. If your out with your kids, keep your cooler stocked with carrots, pretzels, yogurt, and water so you won’t rely on fast food. 

By far the best predictor of a child’s eating behavior is the eating patterns of her parents.
