JUNK FOOD

Junk food refers to high-on-calorie and low-on-nutrient food items. Examples are deep fried foods, or `fast foods` such as burgers, cakes, chips, and colas. Besides being high in calories, these also tend to contain excess sugar, salt and saturated fats that increase the risk for obesity and cardiovascular disease in adult life. While it may be difficult to completely eliminate these from your child`s diet, try substituting them with healthy alternatives.

The Last Supper

An obesity researcher analyzed dozens of famous paintings of the Last Supper and found that food portions have grown larger in more recent ones.

Cornell University’s Brian Wansink (WAHN-sink) studied 52 paintings depicting Jesus Christ’s last meal with his disciples. The paintings were done at various times during the last 1,000 years.

He found that over that time period, the size of the main dish grew 69 percent, the size of the plate grew 66 percent, and bread portions grew 23 percent in the images.

The study was released Tuesday and is published in the April issue of the International Journal of Obesity.
