It could be considered a nutritional nightmare! A study shows the main vegetable for 30 percent of toddlers French fries!

Statistics such as this have prompted the American Heart Association to release its new recommendations for children and adolescents. And get this, the guidelines start from a child's infancy.

Tallahassee Memorial Hospital's Lisa Mullee says parents need to lead by example.

She says, "Let them see you eat the right foods, and take a walk after dinner or dust off the bikes and get some physical activity."

And on Tuesday, the American Heart Association is releasing the cookbook, Healthy Recipes Kids Love.
