Veg Diet Good for Kids

A new study confirms that childhood obesity could be curbed with a plant-based diet.

A new study published in Nutrition Journal concludes that a whole-foods, plant-based diet may be the key to reversing childhood obesity. With the number of overweight kids increasing each year in the United States, health issues like type 2 diabetes and heart disease continue to become major problems. Researchers studied 1,764 healthy teens and kids and found that a diet high in nuts, grains, vegetables, and fruits lowered the risk of obesity, while dairy consumption exacerbated weight gain. The Los Angeles Unified School District recently removed flavored dairy milk and is adding more vegetarian items to its menus based on nutritional concerns.
