I agree that today's children eat WAY too much junk. My son is two years old and I am happy to say he's only had fast food maybe twice because we were on the road and it was quick. In fact today was another such time and he passed up chicken nuggets for some fresh grapes I had. I was so proud, but knew it was no accident. He has learned from the beginning to enjoy healthy foods and he simply has not acquired a taste for junk. He only drinks water, milk occasionally, and eats fresh fruit and vegetables as a snack. He actually BEGS for it. As parents, we need to set a good example and provide our children with a healthy variety of foods.
