(BPT) - The struggle at the dinner table between parents and their picky eaters isn’t uncommon. Add in a food jag, when children fixate on a particular food and don’t want to eat anything else, and the struggle turns to worry – “Is my child getting enough nutrients in his or her diet?”
While many parents worry that their children aren’t getting the right nutrients for proper overall growth, many also overlook the specific need of vitamins and nutrients for eye health. If their child’s vision is OK, then there’s no cause for worry. In fact, only 14 percent of parents are worried about their children developing vision problems in the future, according to a recent survey by Kelton/DSM Nutritional Products.
Now’s the time to help children make food choices that are healthy and provide the right nutrients for their eye health. While carrots are a no-brainer when it comes to providing beta carotene (pro vitamin A) for healthy vision, a slew of other nutrients are necessary for eye health, including vitamin E, lutein, zeaxanthin and the omega-3s DHA and EPA.
