I received an email recently Helen Seagle, Clinical Nutrition Manager, Children’s Hospital Colorado in which she raises a question that’s really got me thinking.
Helen questions how we all liberally use the term “healthy” in kids material.
Healthy food, healthy choices, health snacks…..
She asks – “does healthiness equal “nutritiousness”? Unless something is toxic can’t it contribute to nutrition.
I looked through the KidsCount Survey and we use the word “healthy” throughout.
Any thoughts on this?
Are any of you trying to use alternate ways to talk about …”healthy”?
