Health Tip: Teach Children Not to Waste Food

View the Fat-Fighting Foods Slideshow

(HealthDay News) -- Hunger is an unfortunate global problem that kills thousands every year. So, nations that have sufficient food supplies shouldn't take them for granted.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how to teach children to reduce food waste:

  • Review school lunch menus with your child to determine what foods your child prefers and doesn't like.
  • Ask your child to give new foods a try, but also to try new ways to eat familiar foods.
  • Offer plenty of new foods at home, exposing your child to different cuisine.
