NUTRITION FOR CHILDREN
It is with no doubt that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it is especially crucial for kids as they are active most part of their day. Ideally, a healthy breakfast meal for children should include carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats — that’ll give your child energy until lunch.
Try not to have doughnuts or pastries all the time. They are high in calories, sugar, and fat. They do not contain the nutrients a kid really needs plus pastries like doughnuts wont fill up the child for long.
Just like with other meals, try to eat a variety of foods, including:
- grains ( make at least half your grains whole grains)
- protein (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dry beans, nuts, and seeds)
- dairy products (low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese, and yogurt)
