The Diet Disconnect: How Kids’ Eating & Activity Behaviors Stack Up
A new publication could help shed some light on how we’re doing
When you’re rushing through daily life, it’s hard to find time to check in on the ‘big things.’ How do we know if our families have healthy behaviors? Luckily, a new publication could help shed some light on how infants and children are doing.
The CDC’s journal, Preventing Chronic Disease, published findings from our Feeding Infants and Toddlers Study (FITS). The FITS is the largest U.S. survey on young children’s eating patterns, nutrition, and lifestyles, focusing on kids from 0–4 years old. One area the study looked at was parents’ understanding of their children’s health behaviors.
