START NUTRITION EDUCATION EARLY

It's never too early to start teaching children what's good for them, especially when it comes to nutrition, notes the Nutri/Sys-tem Health & Fitness Information Bureau.

When researchers from the University of Connecticut and University of Massachusetts studied the nutritional awareness of a group of 3-year-olds, as reported in the Journal of Nutrition Education, they found that the youngsters whose parents had given them specific, positive nutrition messages at home were able to apply that knowledge when it came to making healthy food choices on their own.
