Can You Control What Your Children Eat?
A new study from Johns Hopkins University makes a somewhat startling claim -- that parents don't have much control over what their children eat.
Or maybe this finding shouldn't be all that surprising. Study co-author May A. Beydoun says that she concluded that "parents' influence was weak" in terms of determining what was on their kids' plates, especially with older children who ate out a lot.
So what do you think? Can you control what your children eat? Or will you have to wait until they have kids of their own before they eat a bite of broccoli?
