Not Far from the Tree

A University of Edinburgh study found that kids who eat the same food as their parents are healthier, reports Emilie King:

“Using a sample of over 2000 four-year-olds in Scotland, Dr Valeria Skafida who carried out the research, found that youngsters who are fed the same food as the rest of the family eat more fruit and vegetables, less fatty and salty foods and snack less.

“This had the greatest impact on a young child’s health than any other factor—including eating together at mealtimes.”
