Reading Comprehension Quiz 1
The Benefits of Healthy Eating
We all know the benefits of healthy eating, but there is more to it than most people realize. Although it has been shown that children who eat a regular, healthy breakfast perform better at school, and that families who eat supper together tend to be more stable, children often object to being told when or what to eat. Similarly, they will often say they are hungry between meals when they are tired, unhappy or just bored.
Providing a healthy, balanced diet takes great management skills. For the frustrated parent help is at hand. Experts have come up with suggestions which promote better eating habits as well as family harmony. They advise parents to involve their children more in planning and preparing meals. This way the child feels less of an obligation to eat and is more likely to take an interest in good nutrition. The atmosphere at the dinner table is also of prime importance. The television should be turned off to encourage conversation, which should focus on discussion rather than criticism. Between meals, children should be encouraged to identify exactly how they feel. Chances are that if they not interested in fruit or vegetables, they are not really hungry at all.
