  1. Taking in vegetables on a daily basis would also make you fit. It doesn’t have to follow that you will always eat veggies daily, and every meal. This would not be too enjoyable for the kids. So instead of giving veggies in their actual appearance, try “hiding” them in salads or soups. And instead of having sauces or gravies, serving salsas would be heaps healthier. The presence of healthy fruit juices instead of sodas would also be wiser.
