how do you get your kids to eat healthy foods?

Well, we have been back in school for a while now and things have been running pretty smoothly around here. I like being back on a routine. It helps me feel a lot more organized. Here is a picture of my second grader on his first day of school. I cannot believe how big he is! Didn't I just have him a few months ago?!

Now that I am back to packing a school lunch each day, I want to ask you how you get your kids to eat healthy foods? I obviously want my boys to eat healthy. My son is working so hard at school (and playing hard) and I want him to have the energy and nutrients he needs to be successful in his classroom and with his school work.

Sometimes I find it hard to be creative in packing lunches and also healthy at the same time. When you have to send it off to school and want it to stay fresh and cannot pack certain items, it can be difficult. I always try to pack a balanced lunch for him, but I know often times when he sees friends eating treats or other items, he wishes he had that in his lunch. I also wonder when I do put in small treats for him, if some of the other healthier items don't get finished. I would love some advice as to how you get your kids to eat healthy foods whether at home or at school.
