I thought this was important to share. Hopefully all of you are taking care of yourselves too and getting your kids to eat healthy. Below is from the St. Jude website.
Nutrition and Cancer Prevention
Diet plays an important role in preventing adult cancer. By decreasing the number of cancer-associated food products and increasing the amount of cancer-preventing foods you eat, you may reduce your risk of some types of adult tumors.
Most studies about diet and cancer prevention involve adults who are exposed to dietary factors over long periods of time. The real benefit for a child may be in developing habits that will reduce the risk of cancer later in life. Here are some great sites with information on nutrition and the prevention of cancer:
American Cancer Society: Guidelines for Eating Well & Being Active
United States Department of Agriculture 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans
National Cancer Institute
