The boarders may be; a layer of brick along the walk way, a wooden raised bed, a 2 stack block with a flat paver on top,  against the fence boarded with wire fencing, just to name a few.  It does not have to be a large area. (go to gardening 101) Click on Home Depot below, order 36 concrete blocks to create a raised garden that is 8' long x 4' wide x 16" high.  A raised bed of this size can feed a family of 4 each season. This is a great size.  You can plant herbs, lettuce, onions, carrots, etc. in the block's holes.
 Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way that he should go: and when he is old, he will not part from it. 

Train your child to "Live to eat, and not eat to live".  Don't make sugar filled food and drink a reward for good behavior.  Introduce them to healthy food. You be the grown up and decide what your children or grandchildren will eat.
Wash Fruits and Vegetables

"Fruits and vegetables are rich sources of healthful products. To name a few: antioxidants-onions and garlic, beta carotene-carrots, sweet potatoes, and leafy greens, folic acid-dried beans, oranges, and spinach, indoles-broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower, lutein-kale and spinach and lycopene-tomatoes and watermelons"
