I think the most important thing I do is to eat well myself! Kids learn eating habits from their parents. I also always make sure they have options at meals, including 2 vegetables to choose from. My son shocked me the other night when he down asparagus ("green spears to make him superman strong"). It was the first time he's ever eaten them -he's 5. We have fresh fruit available all the time for snacks that my kids know they can eat whenever they want. And, we expose them to lots of different kids of foods by going to eat at many different types of restaurants.
I bingedg on what I could find in the house, we never had snacks except for "special people". We ate healthy meals, but I became bulimic, treated myself "special" as an adult. I buy limited snacks for my kids so they learn moderation in all things.

If a person establishes a restaurant, what need is that restaurant meeting? Is is food or is that too simple of an answer? Is it the experience or the convenience? Since the French Revolution, restaurants have been evolving and I think the question is interesting.

Our kids are far from overweight or obese but they have larger appetites than my wife and I. Generally, how much of this behavior can be attributed to them actually developing or them only wanting to eat out of boredom.Any other parents made this observation or have this concern?Thanks.

I dont know what country you are in but KFC in england is just like fast food and to me, fast food is rubbish. Too much unhealthy overpowering sauces and the chicken is always coated in huge amounts of fat.Give me a plain barbecued chicken leg any day.
