Majority of Parents Fail to Provide Adequate Nutrition for Their Kids, Says Majority of Parents

4.1.1
“Open the pod bay doors, Hal.”

Two-thirds of parents aren’t providing their kids with the building blocks of proper nutrition. It’s not a bunch of egghead scientists making this claim. This statistic comes from mouths of parents. The C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Michigan recently reported the results of their nationwide survey, and although most parents believe that proper nutrition is important to their children, two-thirds of those parents don’t believe that they are doing a good job in that department.

The relative good news is that the majority  (but a smaller majority) of parents– just over half–believe that they are raising their children on a diet of mostly healthy meals. One in six parents claim that their children consume very nutritious diets, and a quarter of parents admit that their kids are subsisting on diet that is either somewhat healthy or not healthy at all.  Almost all polled said that a healthy diet was important for their child.

Here are other startling revelations that the survey brought to light.

Parents cite four main roadblocks: the expense of healthy foods, the convenience of fast and processed foods, uncertainty as to which foods are actually nutritious and that children tend to be picky eaters.  A commonplace complaint was that after buying or preparing their children a complicated-to-make, high-priced healthy meal, the children would refuse to eat that meal, causing tension and frustration.
