 Practical eating tips for kids to apply in their daily lives to achieve best health

Practical eating tips for kids to apply in their daily lives to achieve best health.

  1. Children nowadays have special dietary needs although they can eat more fat, cholesterol and sugar than the average adult. They need the right food to build their bodies and bones and to keep up the energy needed for an active day. For young children, six feeding consisting of three bigger meals and three snacks are recommended each day.
  2. Kids need to eat body-building foods or protein such as meat, fish and poultry for better growth. Other protein foods are dried beans or nuts. They are also made to consume high-energy giving foods such as rice or corn. Eggs or milk also helps to their bones.

  3. Vitamins are specially needed for normal growth of your child. Vitamin-C and vitamin B complex help protect the eyesight and keep the skin smooth. They also prevent the occurrence of bleeding-gums and easily bruised skin. Fruits such as guavas, tomatoes and oranges are specially rich in vitamin C while beans and leafy green are rich sources of vitamin B. Vitamin A plays a very important role for our children's health, since it helps combat common kids such as measles and chicken pox that may lead to infant death if the child is Vitamin A deficient.
  4. Sugar in candies is a good source of carbohydrates. The intake of it could be easily burned down. This simple from of carbohydrates would ensure availability of other nutrients like vitamins, minerals and fibers to prolong the feeling of fullness and dissipate hunger.
  5. Should your child carbo-load? Each child should consume about 2 or 3 cups of rice with any building food such as meat, fish, and poultry. Apply this helpful diet regularly to your children to fight malnutrition and to keep them happy and healthy always.
