FNRI puts great emphasis on the intake of fruits and vegetables to aid the regulation of different body processes. Children require the essential minerals, vitamins and fiber that they can easily get from consuming veggies and fruits. Parents should also remember that kids must have adequate water for hydration.
Moreover, keep sugar-sweetened drinks out of their reach. There would be less risk of tooth decay and obesity if kids stay away from such beverages. Processed foods like sausages, potato chips, canned soups and instant noodles have high amounts of salt, sugar and preservatives—which deter the proper growth of children. Use salt sparingly when cooking meals as well, and opt for steaming or baking instead of frying to reduce the amount of oil in food.
Raising nutrition-smart kids works best if the family engages in bonding activities like taking walks in the park or riding bikes during weekends. Healthy living habits are not that hard to commit to, especially if you have the BPI AIA Wellness Series to help you. Parents with growing children will find it easy to stick to their parenting goals if they are living a healthy and active lifestyle.
