Go, Glow, Grow, and Whoa foods for kids

As children grow, they will naturally gain more independence (and opinions) about the foods they eat. Empowering your children to have healthy eating habits by teaching them which foods will help them feel better, healthy and strong. An easy way to teach your child about kid nutrition is by talking to them about Go, Glow, Grow, and Whoa foods.
• Go foods. These are the foods that give kids energy to jump, run, and play. Examples of Go foods are pasta, potatoes, rice, and bread.
• Grow foods. These foods help their body grow bigger and stronger by building bones, teeth, and muscles. Examples of Grow foods are chicken, meat, fish, eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt.
• Glow foods. These are colorful fruits and vegetables that are full of vitamins and minerals to keep skin, hair, and eyes bright and glowing. They also keep kids' immune system strong so they can stay healthy and recover faster when they get sick.
• Whoa foods. These are foods such as salty snacks and sugary treats. Teach your child that Whoa foods are okay to eat sometimes. Too many Whoa foods can cause weight gain and low energy.
