The first step to showing your children healthy eating habits is to change your own eating habits. Children will follow their parent's lead, if you make it a habit to eat healthy your children will follow your lead. Eat healthy food when you are around your children and they will begin to take part in a healthier diet as well.

Step 2

The second step to showing your children healthy eating habits is to make fast food(or sweets) an occasional treat. You can't totally cut children off from food they like, or they will just eat unhealthy when you are not around. Let your children have fast food every once in a while, but always remind them when they are eating fast food that it is a treat(and that it is mostly unhealthy), and that they don't eat fast food as part of their regular diet.

I totally agree with you - as a parent, if I want my child to develop a healthy eating habit, then I've got to lead by example.
