Family mealtimes represent a great chance for parents to help their children develop positive attitudes to food.
Leanne Thorndyke, head of communications at Beat, noted praise, encouragement and compliments should be dished out to youngsters if they successfully finish their dinner.
According to Change4Life, families should look to organise their day around their mealtimes, as this will stop kids from asking for snacks as they know what time their food is coming at.
Ms Thorndyke added mums and dads also need to consider their own behaviour around produce and the effect this could have on their little ones.
She thinks it is the responsibility of all adults to make sure their offspring gets access to a balanced and healthy diet.
On top of this, youngsters should be encouraged to take regular exercise.
For children under the age of five, this means at least 180 minutes a day, while those aged between five and 18 should do at least 60 minutes every day.
