Eat your peas. Or no dessert." It's a parental refrain about eating right that never seems to change. What does change, however, are kids' nutritional needs and wants. So, here is a crash course on the foods that children age 3 through 12 need to keep growing. Use these, as with any generalized health recommendations, as a guide. And when planning meals, note that particular food groups are rich sources of the following vitamins and nutrients: Milk and Cheese Group: A source of protein; calcium; phosphorus; riboflavin (B2); Vitamin A; Vitamin D (fortified products only); water. Meat, Fish, Poultry or Protein substitutes: A source of protein; phosphorus; iron; zinc; niacin; thiamin (Bl); Vitamin B12. Bread and Cereal Group: A source of complex carbohydrates; phosphorus; magnesium; iron (fortified products only); B vitamins (all but B12); fiber (in whole wheat products). Vegetables and Fruits: Carbohydrates; potassium, calcium (broccoli and col-lards); Vitamin C; Vitamin A; folacin; fiber (skin and seeds); water. Additional Foods (butter, oil or margarine, and sweets): A source of saturated fat; cholesterol; refined carbohydrates (sugar): sodium (salt); Vitamin E. Barbara Morrfmy it a dietician.

POTATO HEAD, A GAME OF many small parts loved by children and loathed by parents, has come to computers. Finally, your child can construct and reconstruct those damned Potato Heads, and you won't have to pick up after the game. Yeah! The funny eyes, the wiggly ears, and all the small paraphernalia that hurts so when underfoot, like the pipe, the glasses, and the teeny-tiny feet, are up there on screen waiting for your child to dress a blank potato with a flick of the joystick. Then when the potato looks as ludicrous as possible it can be animated. Ever seen a potato dance? It's not a pretty sight But it does make small children laugh. For older children (the program is recommended for kids 3 to 8) there are memory games a child is quickly shown a dressed potato and then challenged to create a blank potato from memory in its image. Or the potato goes through an animation sequence the child must recreate. Not too challenging but some fun is to be had. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head is from Random House.

On level two you must make 7 rhyming words and unscramble 10. On level three, it's 10 and 15 respectively. This is a program for a kid who wants to get smart fast "Garfield Eat Your Words," on the other hand, is disappointing. This program is a twist on hangman and Trivial Pursuit Garfield gives you a clue U.S. City and then, as the timer moves relentlessly on, supplies letters. Of course, your child must stop the timer and supply the answer before too long. Unfortunately, the choice of puzzlers is too eclectic How many kids, now 10 (recommended for 10 & up remember David SouL the star of "Starsky and Hutch," or think of the "Astros" when asked to name a team?
