Child Nutrition

There have been a lot of news stories lately about nutrition and obesity. For those who have kids, or who are taking care of grandkids, it's important to get your children on the right track early when it comes to proper nutrition so they will grow up strong and healthy. I found some really great web sites on child nutrition that I want to share. My favorite is the one on how to please fussy eaters from the American Academy of Pediatrics. (That should have been around for my mom when I was little!)

Check out these links:
