Picky Children Stay Without Healthy Food

Eating habits of children depend on the diet and behavior of their parents, according to scientists from the University of Michigan in the United States.

The experiment involved 400 women with children aged 1 to 3 years.

It turned out that picky kids who do not want to try unfamiliar foods, consume less fruits and vegetables than they should.

Conservatism in food habits of children threatened by the emergence of an increased risk of chronic diseases in later life, scientists warn.

The results of a study published in Public Health Nursing, also demonstrate that if mothers do not eat fruits and vegetables four times a week or more, their children will also be deprived of fiber.

"The diet of mothers has a strong influence on what children agree to eat - says Mildred Gorodinski, a professor at the University of Michigan. - Health experts should considere this when developing strategies to increase consumption of healthy food by children. "

Earlier studies have shown that vegetables are not only useful to the kids, but also teach them a proper nutrition. In order to teach the child trying new vegetables without problems you can use books or cartoons.
