4 Your Health: The battle against bullying and children still not eating healthy

Posted: Updated:

Tucson-  A new study reveals bullying has decreased over the past decade.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins surveyed students in 109 Maryland schools between 2004 and 2014. Students reported fewer instances of cyberbullying, along with physical and verbal abuse.

But there is still room for improvement. 13 to 28 percent of students said that they had experienced bullying in the past month.

Young children still not eating well

Despite some improvements in the diets of children many still do not have healthy eating habits.

A new study shows nearly 60 percent of infants did not consume any breast milk during their first five months of life. Also, most toddlers do not consume the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables and they're more likely to eat potatoes than greens. The good news is, fruit juice and soda consumption has decreased.

Researchers said first foods play an important role in laying the foundation for healthy eating habits throughout a childs life.
