Among parents of children between the ages of 4 and 18, only one-third feel they are doing a good job shaping their child’s eating habits, according to a survey of 1,767 parents by the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. About one in four parents say their child’s diet is somewhat or completely unhealthy, and one in six believes their child’s diet is very nutritious.
