Make the TV room a no eating zone.

Excessive TV watching leads to inactivity and mindless munching. So make the TV room a “no-eating zone,” and get the television sets out of your kids’ bedrooms. Turn off the tube during mealtimes, and try your best to limit overall TV watching to no more than two hours a day (this includes non-academic computer activity and video games as well). Your children will be more active and well-rounded as a result.
