Most physicians, nutritionists, and dietician will agree that a healthy, well-balanced diet is critical to a child's health and overall development, but convincing children to choose healthy foods over salty or sugar-laden snacks can be challenging for most parents. As with most things, children learn by observing the actions of others, especially their parents. One of the best ways to motivate your child to adopt healthy eating habits is by adopting them yourself and allowing them to follow your lead. That said, there are several more things that you can do to motivate your child to eat healthily.


A healthy diet is one that helps you maintain or improve your overall health. It should provide the body with the right amount of fluids, micronutrients, macronutrients, and calories needed to function properly. With that in mind, let's take a look at how parents can get their children to eat a healthy diet. The first step toward improving your child's diet should entail creating a healthy eating plan for them to follow. This eating plan should consist of smaller portion sizes as well as a mix of lean meats, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.


A great way to incentivize children to eat foods that they may not like is by adopting a reward program. For example, after they have eaten a healthy meal, you can reward them by allowing them to have a small portion of their favorite dessert. In the end, this represents a win-win for both you and your child. Additional steps that you, as a parent, can take to encourage your child to make better eating habits include

Guiding your child's food choices - Keeping more healthy foods and fewer junk foods in your home can help children make better food choices. It comes down to out of sight, out of mind, meaning they will be less likely to crave foods that they do not see in the home.

More water and less sugary drinks – Encouraging your child to drink more water and fewer sugary drinks not only keeps cavities at bay but also goes a long way toward helping them to either lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.

Setting healthy eating goals for the family – If your child believes that the entire family is on a path towards healthier eating, they will be more motivated to follow suit. After all, they won't want to feel left out. It may also be a good idea to allow your child to play an active role when it comes to grocery shopping and preparing meals. These activities provide children with a sense of accomplishment. And best of all, they are more likely to eat healthy food that they helped bring to the dinner table.

Thank You Vilmos!

When I decided to improve my health I reach out to Vilmos, to be honest, I was a little skeptical. I lost weight in the past using weight watchers a few times, and I was curious about his approach. However, it turns out the investment was worth it because I lost over forty pounds in six months, but this time I’m confident I can keep it off. I learned so much about myself in the last 6 months. I even saw improvement in other areas of my life.

Full of energy and loving it.

THANK YOU, Vilmos!!! Your program improved my habits and my body, and I continue to improve my habits every day. I can’t thank Vilmos enough for caring, understanding, and holding me accountable to make sure I stay on the path to success.

I tried a few diets in the past that lead to frustration and stress — I lost some weight but I became emotional like anyone really needs that. I was referred to Vilmos, and after our discovery meeting, everything clicked. I’m really enjoying the supplements Vilmos created for me.

Vilmos saved my life. For over 20 years i suffered with fibromyalgia that lead me to medication. 20 years after taking my first medication for the fibromyalgia, I end up 20 years later on a total of 8 medication for allergies, ulcer, blood-pressure and a lot of nutrition deficiency’s plus 30 pounds. My blood work from my doctor only got worst after trying different weight loss program and counting calories. After talking with Vilmos I realize he was the right person to help me. For him it was consistency, not a quick fix, which was hard for me because i’m not great with change. After focusing on my ulcer the first 3 days I can tell the difference, I was sold. Six months later my doctor took me off of 5 medication because my blood work was that good and I loss 25 lbs and that is hard for someone that’s about to hit 70 years old. Today i’m taking my custom cocktail supplement Vilmos had created for me to address my vitamins deficiency, trim tea to help with weight loss and ultimate aloe for my digestive system. Today I’m eating healthier and have a lot of energy, so I can’t help but refer people to him, he is great at what he does. Thank you Vilmos, I am you’re number one fan!

I've been searching for awhile for supplements that would help me reach my goal! Things have to really impress me for me give a review but this works so it's easy to do! Vilmos and his team are Bert knowledgeable and the products have really helped me and now my wife! I was the Ginny pig lol!

I discussed my health concerns and goals with Vilmos. I wanted improvement in joint health, good overall circulation, and hopefully to lose a few pounds. At his recommendation, I began the MultiVitamin, and later added Isotonix OPC-3 , and Bromelain Plus. Vilmos is very knowledgeable, and I appreciate that he explains in detail what is in the supplement and how it targets the problem. I believe these products are helping to eliminate my inflammation, improving my joint function; and I definitely plan to continue this program.

I love taking the Daily essentials pack, it was recommended by Vilmos because I was having issues with being tired a lot and feeling low with energy. Since I have been taking it i feel like my rest is actually making a difference. I do not feel tired all day any more It has helped me in ways I can't even describe. Love love it....
