Sue Says:

Like all baby-boomers, myself included, I think we are looking to live well and make a difference we can leave to our children and grandchildren.  I believe taking a vested interested in our homes and the world around us is key to leaving a positive impact for our family and our planet.  I believe being conscious and accountable for keeping a safe, clean and healthy environment is the responsibility for each and every one of us and to teach our children and grandchildren how precious our world actually is.

Children's Health

Food Guide Pyramid

Childrens Health

Proper nutrition is essential for infants and children.  Lack of attention to proper nutrition can lead to serious diseases and health problems.  In our society today, it is easy to be "tempted" by the onslaught of fast food establishments and "quick-and-easy" substitute meals for our children. 

A study conducted by the American Dental Association reported that half of all parents surveyed believed that their children were buying healthy foods at school; however, only 36% of children were actually eating healthy foods at school.  The USDA reports that only 1% of children ages 2 to 19 met all of the dietary recommendations outlined in the Food Guide Pyramid.

It is essential to teach good eating habits at a young age, as these habits will continue throughout the child's life.  Families should practice eating balanced meals with plentiful fruits and vegetables.  To avoid future health problems, children by age two should begin to eat a diet that is moderately low in fat.  Also, sugar intake should be monitored and kept to a minimum. 

Parents can refer to the Food Guide Pyramid to create balanced meals.  The USDA shows that 85% of children eat fewer than the daily recommendation of five servings of fruits and vegetables per day.  That means only 15% of American children are receiving all the vitamins and minerals they need for proper development!
