Nutrition for Kids
When it comes to kids health and nutrition, we sometimes assume that it will be different than an adult’s. After all, kids are still growing so they must need more calcium and multivitamins, right?
A safe and logical assumption, indeed. But the truth is that they need the same kind of nutrition you do. Which makes it easy, because you can figure that a child can eat the same balanced meal that you’re eating. Same dinner, same veggies, etc.
Nutrition comes best from food, for adults and kids alike. Getting a multitude of different vitamins and minerals from food is a fairly easy task. How can that go wrong?
Here are some tips to get the most out of your food for you and your kids.
Buy Organic/Farm Fresh
No, it’s not just a silly trend. There are studies that show up to a 40% increase in nutrients for organic versus conventionally grown veggies. It isn’t magic either. This might come as a surprise, but it’s quite logical. Many conventional growing processes involve an acceleration of growth, thus cutting time short for real cultivation of all the proper nutrients a vegetable or fruit really should have.
There are many health gurus out there who claim that an organic way of life is not as expensive as people think it is. For that, I would have to disagree and say that it could go either way.
