Easy Steps to Your Child's Nutrition

How Parents Influence Their Children's Diet

Parents are the #1 role model for their children, yet a survey by the American Dietetic Association found:

  • Only 51% of kids eat one meal a day with their parents.
  • Parents underestimate how often their kids eat because they're bored, angry, or depressed.
  • 50% of parents think their child buys a school lunch, when only about one-third really do.
  • 43% of kids don't eat lunch at school because their friends don't.

Setting a good example can lead to lifelong healthy habits. Ensure your child's future health. Eat healthy meals with them today.
