1. If your child wants juice, tell him he can have a box of juice after he has drunk a glass of water. Water fills a child's stomach and cuts down the desire for more.
2. If you are designated dessert contributor, try The Sneaky Chef or Deceptively Simple recipes that put veggies in the sugary mix. (and try substituting Stevia for sugar)
3. Consider adding this last minute gift for your youngster - a fun book called  Doc Broc, and here is a quick video for you to find out how the book helps kids understand their health. 
4. Feed your kids healthy food before they go to a holiday party, to dampen their appetite.
5. Make sure kids get to a snowy hill, hit a gym, or find another place where they can sweat out that sugar!
And Happy Healthy Holidays to you!
