Fat To Fit Radio Show Topic: Pizza Prescription

As promised by the Fat To Fit Radio Show...

Pizza Prescription

Kids in the United States love their pizza and some researchers now argue the food should join the ranks of sugary drinks and fast foods — increasingly decried in recent years for the toll they take on health. In a new study, the researchers found that pizza is a large source of calories, saturated fat and salt in kids' diets. They argue kids should not eat more than one or two slices of pizza for a meal. However, many foods are eaten too frequently, and in portions that are too large. To address the problem, people don't have to swear off eating all pizza, but instead, they can eat smaller portions and healthier versions of it. They suggest making it at home, instead of ordering it out where you don't have any control over how it's made. Pizza being blamed as the problem in children's diets is not fair to single out. Eating things you enjoy in moderation is always key.
