Answer:
restrict the intake of junk food try to minimum, for once a week/ fortnight. Don't keep any junk food in the house, so that the child is not tempted. Be firm in saying no, when child asks for junk food. Fix meal times for the child, that is with family meal timings. Don't let him eat in between. Give him healthy options, which should be what the family is eating. Try including his favourite healthy options for the meals. Fruits can be added to the ice creams. You can give him plain rice and give vegetables and dals in snacks like vegetable cheela, dhokla, idli, cutlets etc. Read the following blog to help in his vegetable intake https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/how-to-get-your-child-to-eat-vegetables/608
