who encourage their children to eat wholesome, healthy
meals early will have a positive impact on them for
the future, affecting health, weight, and need for
medical treatments. Vegetables, grains, fruits, legumes,
and nuts are the optimal foods for children. Rich
in complex carbohydrates, protein, fiber, vitamins,
and minerals, they form the foundation for dietary
habits that support a lifetime of health.
Pediatric development tests in vegetarian children
indicated mental age advanced over a year beyond
chronological age, and IQ was well above
average at 116 points. Additionally, researchers
have discovered that adults who consume fruits
and vegetables on a regular basis are also those
who consumed these foods regularly during childhood.
Research conducted more recently reveals that the
strongest predictor of consumption of fruits and
vegetables in children is the behavior and attitude
of the parents.
