Instead of letting the kids IM all afternoon, enlist their help in deciding what's for dinner.
The EPA launched a new website designed to help children (and their parents) choose the healthiest fish to eat.
The site is interactive and uses stories and games to help kids learn about the health benefits of eating fish. For example, you can take a virtual trip to the grocery store or camp site, or go sport fishing, and get visuals and details on which fish are higher in mercury and other toxins.
The site is designed for kids 8 to 12.
Benjamin H. Grumbles, EPAs assistant administrator for water, is quoted in a release: Our new Web site is a fun way for kids and parents to learn about the importance of fish in a healthy diet and how to choose the healthiest fish to eat."
No word yet on whether kids will want to eat anything after learning about how contaminated many fish are due to pollutants.
