What children eat today will have a striking influence on their health throughout childhood and adolescence. Each nutrient is specific to a childs health as children have their unique body needs. These nutrients are extremely important for a child as they help him/her learn and grow, physically and mentally.
As a parent, we should understand our childs diet and cater to their body requirements accordingly. Right nutrition prevents obesity and weight-related diseases, such as bone problems, early heart diseases, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Unhealthy eating at a young age can develop problems that can continue until adulthood. We can guide them from birth through school how to become adventurous eaters with techniques of mindful eating.
A growing child needs nutrition that can meet his/her growing demands of the body, provide sufficient energy and stamina to sustain in school, with friends and at home. A balanced diet offers all the nutrients in the required amount in proper proportions. We build a healthy and strong relationship between the food and the child. With the right advise, you can get started on the right foot and nourish your kid on a long-run.
