Diet for kids

Kids' nutrition is just as important as adults' nutrition. However, each child's nutritional needs may vary depending on their age. Most children, especially those who are young, are quite active. However, they eat very little to compensate for this. As a result, children must get the appropriate amount of food and nutrients to sustain and support healthy growth while also meeting their energy requirements. Physical activity should be encouraged, as well as the use of plenty of plain water. Maintaining proper nutritional intake and physical growth requires regular growth assessments. Children should typically be fed high-energy foods such as whole-grain cereals, full-fat dairy, fruits and vegetables, and so on. Here are some pointers to keep in mind:

• Give your children a variety of colorful veggies, both leafy and non-leafy.

• Children should eat a variety of fruits, whole grains, lean meat, poultry, eggs, and fish, as well as milk and milk products.

• To avoid constipation and create a sensation of fullness, fiber should be consumed in sufficient proportions.

• Limit added sugars, saturated fats, and sodium in children's foods.

• Milk should be given regularly

• Give them plenty of water to keep them hydrated

• Eat together as a family to promote healthy eating habits

• Don't skip breakfast
