Job Stress Among Parents May Be Tied To Less Healthy Eating Among Their Children.

HealthDay (6/29, Doheny) reports that a new study appearing in Social Science & Medicine finds that “the more work-related stress parents experience, the more likely their children are to eat unhealthy meals.” According to HealthDay, the researchers found that “those mothers employed full time had fewer meals as a family, served more fast-food meals and encouraged their teens to eat healthy less often… The fathers’ only difference by employment status was that full-time workers had fewer hours of food preparation than those who worked part time or were not employed.”
