Toddler Diet and IQ - How were YOU fed when you were a kid?

My first daughter is a healthy food champ. My 2 year old, not so much! A WebMD blog post explores a study reporting that kids who ate diets high in processed foods at age 3 had slightly lower IQ scores by age 8 1/2.

This made me think of my own diet when I was a child! My mom abused veggies into mush and fruit was from a can. We had lots of chips and other processed snack foods. So....that's my excuse for not going to Harvard I'm so glad there is more emphasis on healthy foods today...

How were you fed when you were a child and how are you feeding your kids now? Has there been a shift?
