We have that problem too. I am trying to talk up the good foods and explain what they do for our bodies in kid terms. For example, trying to talk about how a turkey sandwich will give you more long lasting energy for soccer than just eating the chips at lunch. Reminding them of how awful it is to play hungry and grumpy vs. having the energy to finish practice and still be able to chase your friend with a water bottle after practice. They get it when I give them scenarios like that, but still whine and beg for the bad stuff several times per day. It's an ever constant battle.

We had/have that problem as well with eating quick stuff like chips etc. Have tried to limit and schedule when we can have what. That's really helped. Still able to incorporate everything in and scheduling it all out helps to not feel deprived and able to stay healthy and making sure everyone is getting the proper veggies, etc.

Good luck :)

Just trying to eat healthier, and avoid sweets and set the example for my family. Discipline is an issue with regards to convenience foods.
