Why not try a healthy non-food alternative next time you want to reward your children? Here are some ideas.
When we give children treats or rewards, they are often food related, such as lollies, chocolate, ice cream or their favourite takeaway. If you want to control your child’s weight gain then it is better to provide non-food-related rewards. Encourage family and whānau to do the same as well.
