New factor in teen obesity: Parents

Posted Apr 01 2009 3:48pm
"In a new policy brief released by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, researchers found that adolescents are more likely to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day if their parents do. Contrarily, teens whose parents eat fast food or drink soda are more likely to do the same."
This article published just a few weeks ago further stresses the importance of parental example. Remember that you may not think that your children are looking at you, but oh, they are watching closely! Lead by example, parents, and you will see that your children will certainly have the positive healthy lifestyles that you are looking for them!
