According to results from the International Food Information Council Foundation’s 2012 Food and Health Survey parents of children younger than eighteen focus more on the health needs of their kids, than they do on their own nutritional needs. Such results aren’t necessarily surprising. Most good parents will strive to give their kids the very best they can afford to give them, whether that’s for food, clothes, or educational needs. And as is often the case, that’s done through parental sacrifice. The survey also goes on to report that a large percentage of parents don’t get enough in the way of regular exercise. Again, not surprising when considering that most parents of children under the age of eighteen also hold down a full time job while trying to raise a family, which doesn’t leave them with much “me” time. On the flip side, eighty-seven percent of parents surveyed believe that it’s good for their health to sit down and eat meals with their children. The constant message coming from parents throughout the survey is that their children are their top priority. Their hearts are in the right place, now we just need to convince them that they need to take care of those loving hearts with a heart healthy diet.
