    Exclamation Can you tell me if this sentence is correct?

    Now that students do not have their mothers here to tell he or she to eat their vegetables, they probably will not eat them as often as they should.

    Now that students do not have their mothers here to tell them to eat vegetables, they will probably eat less of them.

    You just need to make two small changes here: add an article and use "them" instead of "he or she".
