Parent Diet Interventions Help Children’s Eating Habits
[Source: Medical X-Press]
Healthy diet interventions have been shown to be especially important for fruit and vegetable consumption, with research demonstrating that parental modeling, preferences and intake are positively associated with children’s food preference, as well as children’s intake of fruit and vegetables.
To further explore this influence, researchers conducted the “Time for Healthy Habits” translational trial over a 12-week period that recruited more than 450 parents of children aged from 2 to 6 years, offered as a free population-wide service across New South Wales between May 2019 and March 2020, with follow-up contact until March 2021.
