Children’s eating preference has been controversially discussed
British Heart Foundation recently released its latest survey about the changing of eating habit among Welsh children.
It revealed that 94% of them have given up their recommended “5 A Day” of food and vegetable, more shockingly, instead, 28% tended to have sweets, chocolate and crisps at least three times a day.
Also, half of the children usually have carbonated beverage or energy drinks.
Discussion has been raised among school teachers and parents even before the release of the survey. A primary school teacher told us, “We’ve done everything we can at school, but we cannot follow our students home.”
Aimee, a five-year-old boy’s mother, gave the example of her own. “We always avoid crisps and coke in my family. And I also made it my duty to tell my son what should eat.”
“But, a very good-looking and cheap pack of crisps can be a big temptation for children.”
