TV has a profound impact on the type of food children prefer to eat. Many children spend ample time in front of the television and are therefore, influenced by the advertisements and food commercials which pop up every now and then. But the sad part is that most of the commercials are not a great boost for growing brains and bodies as they are high in fat, sugar, sodium and/or calories with minimal vitamins, minerals and fiber content.
Studies by prominent journals have proved that consuming foods advertised on TV provides thrice the amount of sugar and two and a half times the amount of fat a person should consume in a day, on an average.
Is your child aware of “good” eating habits?
