Study: Kids Turning Into ‘Constant’ Eaters

We came across some interesting numbers today: A recent study found that more than 27 percent of calories in American kids’ diets come from snacks, many of which are desserts, sweetened beverages, salty snacks and candy.

The lead researchers said kids snack so often they’re eating almost constantly – an average of three snacks a day on top of three regular meals.

Snacks certainly can help give kids extra nutrients and keep blood sugar stable, but this is certainly a reminder to emphasize moderation.
