Bringing up young children to eat healthily is one of the biggest challenges that parents face these days. It is not easy to explain to a young child that eating their vegetables and fruit is much better for them than the yummy snack given to them by their grandma who likes to see the look of pleasure on their grandchild’s face.
Let’s face it, even the majority of adults still eat food based on what they like without thinking if this is what their body needs to remain healthy…so, the children are facing an uphill battle and it gets worse each year with more and more tempting ‘artificial’ delights in a packet.
