Only 1/3 of Parents Think They Are Doing a Good Job Helping Kids Eat Healthy
“Most parents want their children to eat as healthy as possible but may need help making that happen,” Clark says. “Some parents need help with shopping, meal preparation, or other household chores so that mealtimes are not so hectic. Others would benefit from easy-to-understand information on how to identify packaged foods that are healthy, ideas on how to make kid-friendly recipes a little healthier, and practical suggestions on convincing picky eaters to try a more balanced diet.”
This report is based on responses from 1,767 parents who had at least one child age 4-18 years.
