New Food Pyramid Is Aimed at Kids

'MyPyramid for Preschoolers' helps parents expand little ones' diet in a healthy way

SATURDAY, Dec. 13 (HealthDay News) -- A new federal government food pyramid for preschoolers may help parents deal with picky eating problems, especially as youngsters are introduced to new kinds of foods during Christmas meals.

The MyPyramid for Preschoolers interactive Web site (MyPyramid.gov) offers individualized nutrition guidance to meet the needs of children aged 2 to 5, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP).

"This is a great tool for all parents of preschoolers but particularly those of finicky eaters. It's loaded with great ideas and suggestions for families so they can help their kids eat a more varied and nutritious diet. What I find most useful is how to talk with kids about what to eat and tips on how to have fun with food around the dinner table," CNPP executive director Brian Wansink said in an USDA news release.

Among the MyPyramid for Preschoolers tips to help parents deal with finicky eaters:

  • Set reasonable limits for the start and end of a meal. When you see your child is no longer interested in the meal, excuse the child from the table.
  • Encourage your child to try new foods, but don't lecture or force your child to eat.
  • Talk about fun and happy things as part of an overall effort to make mealtimes stress-free.
  • Cook together. Encourage preschoolers to help you prepare meals and snacks.

Other features on the MyPyramid for Preschoolers Web site include:

  • MyPyramid Plan, where users can create a customized eating plan.
  • Growth During the Preschool Years answers parents' questions about their children's growth.
  • Developing Healthy Eating Habits explains to parents and caregivers how to help children develop healthy eating habits.
  • Physical Activity outlines
