Establish Healthy Eating Behaviors in Early Childhood

Parent Interventions

It is important to establish healthy eating behavior in the pre-school years, according to new research study.

Pre-school children learn through observation and hearing about food and hence there should be talk about good eating habits at home, according to Jane Lanigan, PhD, Department of Human Development, Washington State University. A survey was conducted among 98 families having children in the age group of 3-6 years. It was found that repeated exposure to nutrition phrases helped kids to select the right kinds of nutritious food.


The research gives important insights into how children develop healthy eating habits which in turn help them grow into healthy adults with increased cognitive skills.
