Did you know that poor eating habits in childhood can lead to heart disease, obesity, osteoporosis and other health problems later in life? Parents can improve their children’s diets by serving them skim milk instead of whole milk after age 1. Sweetened beverages should be rare treats. Also, make sure your kids are eating vegetables and fruits with meals or at snack time. And it’s a proven fact – the family that eats together is healthy together. Turn off the television at dinner time and enjoy talking to your children.
