Children who learn heart healthy eating habits lower heart disease risk
Date:9/11/2007

A new study in a mid-August edition of Circulation: Journal of the America Heart Association confirms that when young children learn about heart healthy eating habits, it can strongly influence their heart disease risk later in life.

Results from the Turku Coronary Risk Factor Intervention Project have landmark implications on how children should be taught to eat.

Consumption of vegetables, fruits, berries, and whole grain products was encouraged as well.

The intervention families consisted of 540 children and their families who underwent intensive diet counseling; the control group (522 children and family members) received only basic dietary advice. The goal of dietary counseling for the intervention group was to keep total intake of fat at 30% to 35% of daily calories, the ratio of saturated fat to unsaturated fats at 1:2, and cholesterol i
