Does your child love receiving high fives, tickles, hugs, or stickers for doing a great job? Positive reinforcement is a great way to motivate kids and make them feel good for working hard and accomplishing a goal.

Wouldn’t it be great if your toddler requested more carrots at dinner? This is where reward charts step in. Using a chart is a easy way to track goals and get kids to develop new healthy eating habits. Chore and behavior charts have long been in existence, so here are some tips to incorporate healthy eating goals into them.

Continue to let your child know how proud you are of them and what a good job they are doing after tackling each goal. They will continue to look forward to high fives and hugs, as well as want to show off their chart to everyone that comes visit.

I find all of my charts at I love that they have so many to choose from and you are able to type goals right into the chart before printing! Attached below are some examples to get you started!

Happy eating!
