Researchers at the University of Liverpool in UK found that celebrity endorsement of a food product encourages children to eat more of the endorsed product.
A new study reveals that staying on a healthy diet is even more critical during pregnancy because pregnant mothers who eat a lot of unhealthy food can actually turn their babies into "junk food addicts" before they are even born.
While many children are peaceful eaters, others are very fussy with food and parents may have a tough time just ensuring they eat proper meals. Hence, it is not uncommon for parents to bribe their children with some treats. However, the problem arises when these bribes turn into a habit and the children get hooked on to chocolates and sweets. According to experts, about 60 percent toddlers are hooked on chocolate and sweets and it is none other than their parents who are to be blamed.
