Environmental Influences and What Have We Learned From Dietary Behavior Change With Children?


Sparse research exists on factors influencing use of dietary supplements or on programs to increase dietary supplement use among children. Borrowing from the literature concerning influences on children's diet, parents likely influence children's dietary supplement intake by controlling their availability and accessibility at home and through parenting and socialization strategies.

Research into these areas is warranted.
