If we want our children to grow up healthy and strong, we need to include more fresh foods in their diets. More and more children and adolescents are now considered over-weight or obese. Fast food and poor-quality ready-to-eat meals are becoming a regular part of the average diet. These processed foods account for 75 percent of the saturated fat and salt that children consume.
