Consider getting your kids cooking. I've written a healthy dining cookbook for kids. As early as 8 or 9 kids can start cooking at your home. They'll need supervision with knives and heat in the beginning but you can teach them some simple recipes. Check out my website, where I put up a new recipe each month, based on my cookbook, "In the kitchen with Kids". The book has 60 kid-tested recipes that are using more whole grains, more fruits & vegetables, light dairy and lots of flavor.
