  • Healthy Diet Page 2

    Feeding your child with the appropriate food in the right amount may be

    an everyday difficulty that you have to face. They are commonly picky,

    and would not eat anything that does not look visually enticing to them.

    However, as a parent, it is your goal to give them adequate nourishment

    in order for them to grow up healthy and strong. If you are keen on

    providing your child with the right nourishment, you must first know

    about the food pyramid for kids. This food pyramid will serve as a

    manual for your everyday challenge of feeding your child effectively. The

    old pyramid may be quite similar, nevertheless, adapting to the changes

    is still quite important.

    A lot of parents are wondering as to how they can supply for their childs

    nutritional needs everyday. Just like in any process, planning is very

    important. You have to plan your daily menu based on the food pyramid

    for kids. This is a great way to ensure that your child is getting the

    nourishment he needs to be healthy and strong.

    Planning Your Menu

    It often takes some deep consideration, knowledge, and creativity to

    cook up your childs menu. Aside from choosing the foods that are rich in

    vitamins and minerals, you should also assess whether your child would

    dare to put such foods into his mouth. Providing a menu that has a child-

    friendly presentation would be a lot of help in inviting your child to

    consume the meals you prepare for him.

    Ensure that your child is not left out of the

    planning phase. The good part about this is

    that he is not only given some control of his

    diet, but he gets to learn about his own

    nutritional needs as well. Through this, you can

    be sure that he will be eating what you serve

    primarily because he was the one who chose

    the menu. A visual diagram of the food

    pyramid will help him acquire better knowledge

    and understanding of the basic things he needs to know about his diet.

    Old Food Pyramid Versus New Food Pyramid

    Your basis for drafting the components of your childs meal should be

    the food pyramid for kids. Your knowledge about the old food pyramid

    may help a little, but mainly it is important to adhere to the changes in

    the new food pyramid.

    Whats on the Menu

    The quality of the food you cook is very important. Your cooking could

    either boost or bust your childs appetite. Ensure that you do not

    overcook the food because this will remove a large amount of the

    nutrients.

    Carbohydrates play the biggest role in your childs diet. Kids tend to

    move a lot so giving him energy-packed foods like bread, rice, oatmeals,

    and cereals is highly recommended. Avoid giving him products that are

    made of flour or are too starchy. In lieu of margarine or butter, use olive

    oil or sunflower oil instead.
