Kids and Meals: It Doesn’t Have to Be a Battleground

Parenting children is quite a challenge in every aspect, but meals and eating habits need not be included as part of the challenge. Recent research findings are suggesting that more liberal attitudes toward allowing young children to govern their own intake is the best way to ensure that children maintain their ideal body weight throughout the rest of their lives. Contrary to earlier ideas about the parental role in ensuring their children’s nutritional and caloric needs, current research findings are supporting the idea of a much less assertive role in encouraging young kids, and consequently all kids, to eat.
