Friends! Hope you have already understand that, in this article I am not going to share any recipe for kids. Rather I am sharing some ideas about essential food element at dinner time, how you can provide your kids the proper nutrition and above all how you can help your kids as they feel better to eat their dinner without being bound to eat dinner. So, let’s see the necessary steps to serve our kids a healthy dinner.
Kids need some essential nutrients for their healthy life long development. Here is the list of the nutrients.
You have to be smart and be aware of healthy and unhealthy fats before adding it for your kid’s dinner. The good fats are monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. Nuts, vegetable oils, peanut butter,almond butter and avocado are the source of monounsaturated fats. Salmon, herring, sardines and trout are the source of polyunsaturated fats. These fats decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. If your kid is habituated with these your kids will be benefited in later.
Sugar is an important source of energy. We need to keep in mind that our kid gets the sugar from natural source of foods such as fruit and yogurt. “….giving them foods high in added sugar (like fizzy drinks, biscuits,cakes and sweets) odd up to lots of calories and little in the way of nutrients”. American Health Association recommends less than 25gm of sugar per day for children ages between 2 to 18 years.
