Can you please tell me why it'simportant to promote healthy eating for children and young people?

Good for you ! : It is good for you; healthy eating since early childhood (if possible) not only prevents lots of diseases, also influences how kids will perceive and understand food the rest of their lives. They will educate others (eventually their own kids) and will have "sweet" memories of their childhood linked to healthier things. The cost of not having done this years ago is enormous for the system. ...Read more

Too many options: In the third world countries, eating disorder is very rare, so are the "picky-eaters." when you don't have enough, you would eat anything/everything.

When kids have too many options, they tend to pick things that are easy/fast and have some tastes to them, not for health reasons. So, limit their choices, live by examples. ...Read more
