HEART HEALTHY SNACKS
happy heart
 
     The early years are when your child begins to develop lifelong eating habits and attitudes toward food.  The foods your child learns to eat now, he or she will probably eat as an adult, childhood feelings about food carry forward into adult feelings about food. Eating habits established in childhood are hard to change.  Because diet is a major risk factor in the development of heart disease, the American Heart Association is especially concerned with helping your child develop positive attitudes about nutritious foods.
