    Satisfy Your Child’s Cravings with Healthier Snacks
    Snacking on unhealthy foods is a major factor contributing to the increase of child obesity, but can parents satisfy their child’s cravings with healthier snacks?

    Yes, according to a new study. 

    If we can get our children to eat nutrient-rich cheese and vegetables instead of unhealthy snack foods like potato chips, we can help reduce the obesity epidemic that is affecting the health of our children.
