How do school food programs boost the health of kids?

By feeding them: Sadly, there are many children in our country whose parents cannot feed them, and for some of those kids, the only meals they really get in a week are the meals and snacks they get at school.

Teen nutrition and exercise motivators?

Teen nutrition and exercise motivators?

Other teens: Forgive my frankness. You're right to want the best for them. If you're a parent, nagging your teen about food choices and fitness will be ignored and resented. A parent may have some good impact if they life a fitness-focused lifestyle themselves. Otherwise, favorable peer pressure is what gets teens to eat wisely & exercise; of the two, exercise is far more important for health. ...Read more

Can healthy eating programs in schools trigger eating disorders in students?

Possibly: If healthy eating programs focus more on weight loss than on eating nutritiously, some adolescents who are more vulnerable to eating disorders could become obsessed with weight loss . This could possibly launch an eating disorder. Any factors that lead to heightened awareness of weight or body image can have the same result (like ballet training, modeling, any dieting behavior, etc). ...Read more

How can we develop healthy eating habits in schoolchildren?

How can we develop healthy eating habits in schoolchildren?

Take it easy: Children's palettes take a while to develop. Putting too much pressure on them to eat a variety of foods when they don't want to could wind up having the opposite of your intended effect. That said, set a great example. Offer lots of choices. And make it fun. Because if it's fun you're likely to enroll them. If it's a burden, you're likely to push them in the wrong direction. ...Read more
