New Food Guidelines for Kids

Anyone with a preschooler knows about fussy eaters.  Now a new website may provide some help.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture has launched "My Pyramid" for preschoolers, a website that provides nutritional guidelines for children aged two to five.  You enter the sex, age, and activity level of your child and the guide tells you how much from each food group your child needs for good health.

This site also provides tips on healthy eating habits and how to encourage your kids to be more physically active.

Just log on to www.mypyramid.gov  and click on the preschooler link.
