Feeding Your Kids The Right Thing

Can Too Much of a Good Thing Be a Bad Thing?

Growing up, my parents frequently urged me to eat my vegetables at mealtime.

Since they believed most things are best in moderation, I was occasionally allowed to indulge in junk food, too. To see why this might have been a good thing,

.

While not promoting preservatives and additives, British dieticians are saying:

Too much fibre and too little fat can lead to vitamin deficiencies and stunt growth in children under five–years–old. . . Too many fibre-rich fruit and vegetables can inhibit the body's ability to absorb other nutrients, including key minerals such as iron, which is essential for growth, as well as for the health of blood and the immune system.

My babe enjoys carbs way too much to live on carrots, but she certainly delights in a bushel of grapes! Next time I serve up a waffle, I'll pat myself on the back knowing I'm doing her body (and taste buds) some good.

hmm interesting. I had a nutrition class in college and he didn't say anything like this... although we spent very little time on childhood nutrition.

I don't think this will be a problem for most people, unless they are in Hollywood. Kids love card and fat. So everyone should worry more about getting enough fruits and veggies.
