HEALTHY EATING & FAMILY MEALS

'Family meals are a comforting ritual for both parents and kids. Children like the predictability of family meals and parents get a chance to catch up with their kids. Kids who take part in regular family meals are also:

  • more likely to eat fruits, vegetables, and grains

  • less likely to snack on unhealthy foods'

Nutritious Foods for Kids!

When buying and preparing healthy foods, for parents it is the easy part! The hardest part is getting your child to actually eat those nutritious foods. Your child's body uses nutrients from food to function properly and stay healthy. Nutrients include carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Calories are the amount of energy in the foods and drinks your child consumes. Children need a certain amount of calories to grow and develop.

Examples of nutritious foods:
Avocadoes: Avocado is full of monounsaturated fats, the “good” fats that kids actually need in their diet every day.

Mangoes: One cup of this sweet tropical fruit provides almost a whole day’s supply of Vitamin C which helps keep kids’ immune systems running strong and keeps teeth and gums healthy.

Blueberries: Blueberries have antioxidants called anthocyanin which give the berries their brilliant color. Similar to cranberries, blueberries also contain antioxidant proanthocyanidins, which are chemical compounds help reduce the impact of bacteria.

Greens: Spinach and kale are linked to lower odds of getting dementia in life. Kale is a super food, packed with antioxidants and other nutrients that help new brain cells grow.

STAY HEALTHY, ACTIVE & ALWAYS EAT RIGHT!
