I think education and exposure is the way to go. Making something "forbidden fruit" just makes it more attractive. Train their little taste buds so junk food doesn't taste good and they know why, and they'll know what alternatives there are as they get older and you'll have a healthy eater.

I have 3 grandchildren 2 girls eat bits and bobs of chocolate for treats and have the odd packet of crisps ECT, my grandson has never had chocolate or crisps ECT, no difference in the behaviour or health, so unsure.

Yes, only if you care about what they eat.

What you eat at one meal causes you to desire to eat that again.
