11/5/07 - Today’s Topic is FOOD: and Kids Are What They Eat! [Listen to Audio]
 
Today, healthy eaters angle for nutrients from a wide range of foods, layered with ethnic, religious, cultural and personal preference. As a parent and shopper, you know the days of the four basic food groups – dairy, meat, vegetables and fruit – are long gone! When you as a parent, are at the market, is there a food pyramid in your head or…do you do what you always do? Today, a healthy diet encompasses a far wider range of options: whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts, fish, and even plant oils. The options are better than ever before when planning healthy meals and snacks. Dr. Susan Turben invites her guest, Tanya Sussman, a Registered Licensed Dietitian, to guide listeners toward more healthy food choices. Get tips on grocery shopping. Did you know the healthiest foods such as fresh produce, unprocessed meats and dairy products tend to be placed around the perimeter of the store? Live on the “edge” and don’t miss this show!
