Are You Picky??

While I was still half asleep this morning, I heard someone on the radio say that if you're a picky eater as a child, you have a greater risk of becoming overweight. I found the piece on the website (if you don't know how to read Danish, then you can just skip that link).

According to the article that the radio piece is based on, every third child, who is a picky eater, between the age of 2 and 5,  will become overweight. In comparison, only every tenth child, who isn't a picky eater, becomes overweight.

There's a doctor quoted in the piece who says that parents must face the conflict around the dinner table head on. Cause if you give in, and just take the easy road, then you more than likely will end up giving your child "easy food", which is usually synonymous with unhealthy food.

But you want your children to be healthy, don't you??

How about that? A post with proper content! ;-)
