Obesity, diabetes, and other ailments caused by poor nutrition, inadequate (or non-existent!) exercise habits, and just plain too much food are rising alarmingly in America. Between the ages of two and eight, a typical kid will eat thousands of meals, many at fast-food restaurants, and watch many more thousands of commercials that portray a number of foodstuffs high in sugar and fat as cool, exciting, and downright irresistible. It's small wonder that one child in five is overweight, and that health problems like elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure and Type 2 Diabetes are increasing in kids.

In such an atmosphere, it's imperative that teachers, schools and parents help their young ones learn how to eat healthily. In Feed Me!, we take a look at the MyPyramid for Kids and show how it can be used to help children make the right dietary choices.

Learn:

  • How to handle finicky eaters.
  • How to get kids to eat those vegetables.
  • How to make dairy a low-fat option.
  • How proteins can be gained through nuts and seeds.
  • What a proper serving size really is.
  • What sort of snacks finish off a well-rounded diet.
  • The four guidelines for selecting fruit drinks.
  • How to pick the best breakfast cereals.
  • The seven common "feeding tactics" to avoid.
  • The link between TV and obesity.
  • How to build healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.
