The article also states that kids today:
• Are less likely to consume carbonated soft drinks, ice cream, candy, cake and fruit juice as snacks than kids the same age did 20 years ago.What good news for the health of the next generation! If they start out eating healthier foods like fruits and vegetables those tastes will continue into adulthood, leading to less obesity and less diet-related disease.
• Are more likely to have fruit rolls and gummy pieces, yogurt, crackers, granola bars and bottled water.
And to think, it all started on Sesame Street with a certain furry blue monster changing his ways. Thanks, Cookie!
