Following are the resources Dr. Garrote mentioned:
Healthychildren.org American Academy of Pediatrics’ parenting website. It has great evidence-based information for parents but the Nutrition information is in the section on “Healthy Living.”
Choosemyplate.gov This is a great nutrition resource for parents. It teaches parents how to make healthy choices for their kids and has a great tool for teaching portion sizes. It even has an App “MyPlate.”
