This infographic represents how kids can develop heart disease at a young age by their nutritional diet. Many factors can be involved with kids developing heart disease. Poor nutrition can be determined to be one of the major reasons why kids develop heart disease. Kids are more likely to eat foods that contain saturated fat, which is unhealthy fat. This leads to kids becoming obese due to eating habits as they continue to grow. This can lead to kids becoming physically inactive as well. Not having a proper nutritional diet, and lack of physical activity can set kids up at a young age for cardiovascular disease. Eating two and a half cups of fruits and vegetables a day can help lower kids chances of developing cardiovascular disease. Knowing what you put into your body is important, and it is important that parents help to make sure that their child is putting the right food into their bodies as well.
