    I agree. Kids are bombarded with way too many "kid" foods that are loaded with artificial coloring and flavoring, added sugar, and other junk. I've also noticed that the more upscale brands are jumping on board and making their own versions of fruit roll-ups, cheese crackers, etc. that SEEM healthier–but while they may be made with organic flour and have fewer artificial colors, they're still high in added sugar, sodium, etc.

    I agree with Sally, just because the label says organic doesn't make it healthy! I also agree with you about planting a garden. My son loved to eat fresh vegetables from our garden, but won't necessarily eat the same veggies from the store.

    You are correct in pointing out that our food culture has changed tremendously in the last 50 years. On one hand, we seem to have made a lot of progress. But when it comes to the health of our children, we seem to have fallen behind. Your suggestions are very useful and offer a chance to busy parents to begin taking control of the situation.

    as a parent we should guide our children to healthy foods and nonetheless we should train them to eat practice balance diet.
