Positive Parenting: More Veggies

Most parents know their kids should eat lots of fresh veggies to stay healthy, which is easier said than done.

According to one study, about one in five parents of 1-year-olds reported that their toddlers ate no vegetables at all on the days they were surveyed.

Now scientists say they have a way to help kids eat more of the good stuff.

Authors of the study say while the amount of vegetables increased during the study, it still didn’t meet dietary guidelines.

According to the USDA, children who are four to eight years old should have one and a half to two and a half cups of veggies per day.
