Limit Treats

Nutritionally speaking, your child doesn’t need the unhealthy calories found in junk food like cookies, candies, cakes, chips and soda. Practically speaking, completely forbidding this type of food is likely to backlash; creatig a child who wants more of this type of unhealthy food.
Make these foods an occasional treat because the risks associated with eating a diet high in junk foods include: cavities, diabetes, and weight issues

Limit treats to once a week if weight is an issue
Start slow for a better chance of success
Soda is a double whammy; it replaces more nutritious choices and is bad for bones and teeth

Teach your child: junk foods do nothing to strengthen their bodies
