It says that two-thirds of children lacked the recommended levels of Vitamin E. Others were also found to be short on Vitamin C. WITN spoke to one Greenville nutritionist who says preschool aged children do need some fats for their ongoing development. She says it's important to introduce a variety of foods to them that is rich in fruits and vegetables, some whole grains. She also urges parents to limit some of those empty calories found mainly in junk food.
