Every parent has heard the inevitable question from their children, “What’s for dinner?” Healthy options are always a priority when searching for the answer for their families and themselves. A recent survey of parents  listed these as the top three  health and nutrition issues facing U.S. children:

  • Instilling healthy eating habits (73 percent, up 10 percent from 2013)
  • Reducing childhood obesity (71 percent, up 12 percent from 2013)
  • Increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables (67 percent, up 10 percent from 2013)

Consumers also have a keen interest in the healthfulness of fats and oils. The majority recognize omega-3 fats as “healthy” and trans fats as “unhealthy.” 1,000 random surveys consistent with the U.S. population.
