Immigrant kids' diet is different, less nutritious than mom's
from Penn State via EuerkAlert!
The diet of Mexican immigrant children in the U.S. is different from what their mothers eat, according to Penn State sociologists, and that may mean kids are trading in the generally healthy diet of their moms for less nutritious American fare. This change in children's diets may be related to other research that shows high obesity prevalence among children of Mexican immigrants.
