Nutritious and Healthier Lifestyle for Children

Updated on November 30, 2015

Our children are in trouble because we live in a world where Fast is equal to Food which are “Fast Foods”. We have outsourced the job of cooking and feeding them to Food manufacturers. Our children are in trouble as their diet mainly consists of 69% of processed food. It’s not a bad thing for our children to crave for variety of tasty food. Our desire for convenience leaves us depending on junk and processed foods. This makes us rely on food manufacturers to produce the food we feed our families.

When we cook we get to decide what is contributing to our children nutrient intake. And unlike the food manufacturers we have a strong interest in the health of our children. We could practice moderation in the food and making it interesting for our children, then no food is forbidden for them. We could start with the resources that are available to us. We could have more control over where our food comes from and also on the hygiene.

The main consumers of processed or junk foods are our children. What the consumers of processed food don’t know is that they are stripped off their nutrients to make the food last longer. Because pests like mold or fungus are less attracted to foods that are low in nutrients. They then add lots of things like salt, flavoring, stabilizers, corn syrup & other preservatives to enhance the food texture and appearance. And finally synthetic nutrients are added so that they could actually claim that the food is healthy for children.

Children should be provided with nutritious food in one form or the other as their body grows rapidly and they need necessary nutrients to enhance their immunity. We should be very careful in front of our children as they learn healthy or unhealthy habits at an young age. It is a challenging task for any parent to cook the food loved by their children along with inclusion of necessary nutrients.

Even though our children may react too much to new food, we should give them some time. They will like the food eventually with regular gating habits. Nutritious food is very important for a child to receive balanced nutrients in the body. Let me give you an overview what is needed

  • Carbohydrates helps in providing energy for regular activities
  • Vitamins and minerals are important for functioning of the body
  • Proteins and Fats helps in growth & development of your children

Watch this video with your children to understand the importance of Nutritious Food

Children know what their parents are eating and feeding them. So we could help them adopt good eating habits by eating nutritious and delicious food ourselves. It is a good time to start healthy eating habits in early stage of childhood. Food is a way of communicating and showing care to our children. It’s a way of celebrating together for our way back to health, happiness and love for real food.

Do you believe in making home made food for your children in this modern world?

      You are so right that we have out-sourced a lot of our cooking, and that is having a detrimental effect on the health of our children.
