A good time to establish healthy eating habits for life is during the toddler (ages one to two) and preschooler (ages three to five) years. Getting children to eat healthy foods can be challenging because they are often selective/picky about the foods they eat and are sometimes hesitant to try new foods. In general, they do not appear to eat very much.
