Dr. Demetrios Gabriel, a Brooklyn pediatrician, responds to an article published on February 19 by Napervillesun.suntimes.com, which encourages parents to teach their children about proper diet planning.
According to the February 19th article published by Naperville Sun Times titled “Parenting Matters: Make healthy foods fun for kids,” children have a tendency to be picky eaters which can sometimes result in bad eating habits. For this reason, it is very important for parents to exercise their authority and step in to correct them.
The article states that the best ways to teach children about good eating habits is by exposing them to healthier food choices, providing them with small, manageable food preparation tasks and eating electronic-free family dinners together at least five times a week.
Dr. Demetrios Gabriel, a Brooklyn pediatrician, says parents need to be actively involved in their children’s diets in order to ensure they stay healthy. “It’s difficult to say no to your little ones, but parents need to be aware that unhealthy choices could jeopardize their kids’ overall health and growth,” he explains. “Improper nutrition can put the child in danger of various health risks which can range from obesity to heart problems.”
He added, “It’s the parents’ duty to teach their children about healthy eating habits as early as possible. Proper nutrition starts in the home.”
