In the past few years there have been improvements in children 2-18 years:
- more whole fruits
- less fruit juice (nutritious but high in calories!)
- BUT still not enough vegetables
According to the report the average american eats only 1.3 servings of vegetables a day. In Kansas 22% reported eating less than one serving of vegetables a day and that report includes french fries as a vegetable option!
Dr Proctor, the author of the study suggests that as parents prepare for back to school time, they should think of adding vegetables to the lunch pack.
That brings to mind another use of the BioPhotonic Scanner. Keeping in mind Tuesday's post, bringing the scan score up could be motivator. I know some school children who are motivated by competition. Get an initial scan for your child, pack extra fruit and veggies and come back to rescan in one month. Studies have shown increases in Skin Carotenoid Score with increased consumption of fruits and vegetables and we could show the proof to the child in a fun way. Your score went up! So the child wants to continue: a good habit is born!
No change. Maybe she did not eat those veggies packed especially for her. Enough said.
Call to set up a 30 second scan for your child, 512-451-5788.
A good habit born early: higher Skin Carotenoid Scores are associated with fewer breast cancers.
Together we can prevent 90,000 breast cancer cases this year!
