Handing down the Genes. Part 3 (of 3) – Diabetes Health | March 2, 2010

Olivia Grider writing on Diabetes Health’s website, gives some great tips for generally eating better:

“Small changes in food choices and daily activity can make a big difference in children’s health – and their risk for type 2 diabetes. Here are some ways to get started.

* Lose the juice. Advertising makes it easy to think fruit juice is good for kids – it’s organic, it has vitamins, it’s made from fruit, after all. What the advertisements don’t tell you is that it’s also packed with sugar and has none of the fiber found in whole fruit. Try providing half an orange with breakfast instead of orange juice.”
