Among the challenges faced by parents to develop healthy eating habits in children is due to today's hectic life which causes nutrition and physical activities to be neglected. The fact children tend to reject planned food can be frustrating for parents. Today's youngsters' physical activities are greatly reduced which explains the alarming rate of obesities in children. Thus, teach them which food is essential and those that need to be taken moderately.Their food intake should be with clear guidelines.
