    At my Preschool, we include a good amount of healthy and reasonable opportunities for the children to make voluntary decisions about what they want for themselves. We let them choose whether or not they want to brush their teeth after every meal, and we provide meals with a variety of different foods to try. They are welcome to eat what they want out of what we offer, and if they change their mind about wanting to try something, we give it to them! I noticed that we don’t do a lot in trying to make healthy habits fun. We just have them do it and explain how important it is to take care of yourself and why. We do have a cute bilingual song we sing for cleanup time, but that’s kind of it!
