Parents beware. Telling your child to clean their plate may help produce a fussy eater, while tight control of what they eat could make children prone to overeating, according to a study.
Though a number of studies have found that when parents strictly control what their children eat -- either denying all unhealthy food or pressuring them to expand their meal choices -- their children may be more likely to have less than ideal eating habits, it has not been clear whether these parental tactics were a cause of or a response to their children's' eating habits.
