One of the most important things I can think of to get one's children to eat right, is to cook at home! Use fresh ingredients - grown in one's own garden is a plus - and let the children help cook. Even if it's just buttering bread or stirring the pot. While my girls were growing up, we rarely ate fast food, that was a very occasional occurrence. We also tried several sports before we chanced on one that my children both liked. That sport was tennis and now that my girls are grown, they still play. One has graduated from college, the other is a junior in college. Both are healthy, normal weight adults now who cook for themselves and know what are wise choices when dining out. Cook at home!
