About this site
The Taste Buddies website is produced by the American Institute for Cancer Research as part of our children's education program. The Web site is aimed at 7-11 year olds and strives to encourage healthy eating and an active lifestyle in a fun and informative way. We hope that by visiting our site, children will become familiar with healthy living messages and develop positive habits that will follow them through adulthood.
Scientific research shows that about a third of the most common cancers could be prevented if we eat a healthy diet, maintain a healthy weight and get at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. Due to the age of the target audience, this Web site does not refer specifically to the link between healthy living and cancer prevention.
