The main areas of concern with reference to television and children are:

1. Time spent watching TV displaces other types of creative and imaginative activities.

2. Television watching discourages reading.

3. Television watching discourages exercise.

4. Television advertising increases demand for material possessions.

5. Exposure to violence on television can increase aggressive behavior in some children.

Nutrition for kids: Guidelines for a healthy diet

Nutrition for kids is based on the same principles as nutrition for adults. Everyone needs the same types of nutrients — such as vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein and fat. Children, however, need different amounts of specific nutrients at different ages.

Consider these nutrient-dense foods:

Protein.
Choose seafood, lean meat and poultry, eggs, beans, peas, soy products, and unsalted nuts and seeds.
Fruits. Encourage your child to eat a variety of fresh, canned, frozen or dried fruits — rather than fruit juice. If your child drinks juice, make sure it's 100 percent juice without added sugars and limit his or her servings. Look for canned fruit that says it's light or packed in its own juice, meaning it's low in added sugar. Keep in mind that one-half cup of dried fruit counts as one cup-equivalent of fruit. When consumed in excess, dried fruits can contribute extra calories.

Vegetables.
Serve a variety of fresh, canned, frozen or dried vegetables. Aim to provide a variety of vegetables, including dark green, red and orange, beans and peas, starchy and others, each week. When selecting canned or frozen vegetables, look for options lower in sodium.

Grains.
Choose whole grains, such as whole-wheat bread, oatmeal, popcorn, quinoa, or brown or wild rice. Limit refined grains.Nutrition for kids is based on the same principles as nutrition for adults. Everyone needs the same types of nutrients — such as vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein and fat. Children, however, need different amounts of specific nutrients at different ages.

Dairy.
Encourage your child to eat and drink fat-free or low-fat dairy products, such as milk, yogurt, cheese or fortified soy beverages.
Aim to limit your child's calories from:

Saturated and trans fats.
Limit saturated fats — fats that mainly come from animal sources of food, such as red meat, poultry and full-fat dairy products. Look for ways to replace saturated fats with vegetable and nut oils, which provide essential fatty acids and vitamin E. Healthier fats are also naturally present in olives, nuts, avocados and seafood. Limit trans fats by avoiding foods that contain partially hydrogenated oil.

Kids Can Bake: Giant Chocolate Chip-Sprinkle Cookie

Ingredients

1 cup cake flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon multicolored sprinkles

Directions
Position a rack in the center of the oven, and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line 1 large rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

Microwave the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl on high until completely melted, about 1 minute. Whisk in both sugars, then the egg and vanilla, until incorporated and smooth; let cool for 5 minutes. Stir in the flour mixture with a wooden spoon until just incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Scoop the dough onto the center of the prepared baking sheet. Spread the dough with an offset spatula into an 8-inch circle that's 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle the top of the cookie with the sprinkles (they'll look crowded but will spread out as the cookie bakes). Bake, rotating the baking sheet from back to front halfway through, until golden but still soft in the center, 22 to 25 minutes (the longer the cook time, the crunchier the cookie). Let cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet, then use a large spatula to transfer the cookie (not the parchment) to a rack to cool. Slice the cookie into wedges, and serve.
