Long Term Consequences of Early Fruit and Vegetable Feeding Practices

Many media sources have reported today on research which looked at the long term consequences of early fruit and vegetable feeding practices in the UK. The original research was published in Public Health Nutrition in 2010. 

It found that children who were given home-cooked fruit or vegetables more often at 6 months were more likely to be eating a higher proportion of fruit and vegetables at 7 years, than those who were given home-cooked fruit and vegetables less often. The authors concluded that exposure to fruit and vegetables is important in the early weaning period.
