A fact is a fact is a fact

We wanted to share a few facts with you about where our children are headed these days with food habits and physical activities.

Did you know:

  • only 3 out of 10 high school students eat vegetables every day
  • on average a child will eat 29 tablespoons of sugar every day.  That equals out to 29 pounds of sugar a year.
  • 1/3 of all teens are considered unfit
  • 23% of Missouri children ages 5-11 are overweight with 27% more at risk to become overweight
  • 11% of Kansas childen in grades 6-12 are overweight with 13% more at risk to become overweight
  • on average a child will spend 4-5 hours a day, watching television, sitting at a computer or playing video games.  That equates out to between 2 and 3 months.
  • it takes only 10 positive exposures before a child will change his/her taste preferences for a new food
  • Bistro Kids students are fed nutrient rich meals that supply them with the proper energy and equip them to learn

All of us have a personal responsibility to put a down payment on our future.  Our children are the future and our most prized investment.  It’s worth our efforts to guide them to be healthy in mind, body and spirit

The question now is………….Are YOU ready for a paradigm shift?
