Create Child Object records when Parent Object record is created

Hi All,

Can any one help me to find the best way to accomplish this requirement?

When a parent Object record is created I have to populate 5 child object records. By using Apex trigger I can do this or I have to develop a VF page? Please guide me on this. Thanks in advance!!!

You will have to write a trigger. Here's an example for creating 5 records in the child object.

trigger createChild on obj_1__c (after insert) 
   List<obj_2__c> lstObject2 = new List<obj_2__c>();
    for (obj_1__c con : trigger.New) 
       for(integer i=0; i< 5; i++ )
          obj_2__c ob2 = new obj_2__c();
          ob2.obj1__c =;
    insert lstObject2;

obj_1__c  is the parent and obj_2__c is the child object
