    A toddler cannot understand that a food is not good for him like too much candies, soda and other junk food. But due to the tv commercials centered on children, the toddler learns about the fast food items that are not good for them like burger and fries, pizza, etc. So how would you teach the toddler to eat good food and not junk food?

    I have to admit that it's difficult to curb the desire of the toddler to crave for such kind of empty foods for we, adults are eating those junk foods.

    Well in the first place we stop or avoid consuming those foods and show to them we never eat junk foods. By example we may convince them.

    It's easy, just serve the meals that you want your kid to eat during meal time and lead by example, and train them to eat that food regularly.
