Ontario Kids Junk Veggies to Vegetate on Junk Foods

Ontario: A perceptive survey has established the prevailing trend among kids of today, who have turned the table on healthy diets, for quick fix snack options.//

Researchers from university of waterloo conducted an elaborate nutrition survey which revealed the unwholesome truth about eating wrong from a tender age. Parents and kids must know the pitfalls of unhealthy eating, which is a leading cause of increasing obesity rates, researchers said.

Researchers analyzed more than 650 children in Ontario, studying in grades 6, 7, and 8. A web based questionnaire was used to find the diet of respondents on each day. This was compared with the stipulations of the Canada food guide.

Researchers were simply alarmed to find that not a single kid met with the daily requirements of grains, dairy products, fruits and vegetables. Nearly 25% of the boys confessed to rarely eating vegetables or completely giving it a miss.

What was shocking, almost 25% of the total calories were obtained from foods that did not form part of the four recommended food groups. The diet was plain fatty stuff, sweetened drinks in place of healthy food.

It pays to know that children growing up with such unhealthy diets will become preys to a host of chronic ailments, the most notorious of which could be Type 2 diabetes, heart disease or cancer. Researchers stress that it is important to catch the children young and inculcate healthy eating, so that they grow into healthy adults.
