“Research has shown that children are more likely to choose those foods with familiar logos. That is concerning because the majority of foods marketed to children are unhealthy.” –Dr. Amanda Bruce, University of Missouri-Kansas City
What have we done to our children? Marketing begins at such an early age, two year olds know to ask for nuggets and fries. Fast food is not all bad, just make good choices and balance it out with nutritious snacks at home. Incorporate all four food groups in your menu at least a few times a week. Remember, family time around the table is so important.
