Are Your Kids Eating at the Table?

Where a child eats can affect his or her chances of becoming overweight. Researchers in the US studied children aged two to five from over 100 daycare centers.

Results show that children who eat meals at the table, and who are allowed to serve themselves, are less likely to be overweight than children who are served a plateful of food in front of the TV.

The study reports that when foods are pre-plated, children never learn to read their body’s hunger cues. Also, parents shouldn’t pressure children to finish a serving because it can encourage them to over eat.
