The significance of proper nutrition in kids

Your kid seems to be growing with a 4G speed. He/she was just baby a few years back and today you can see a toddler evolving rapidly. But often with the progress of the body, the nutritional value is forgotten. Well, you definitely don’t want your kid to become tall and be weak and fragile from inside. Considering the present situation, we all know how essential good immunity is for the body and health. So, let’s take a look at the importance of the right nutritional intake for the body.

A happy and chirpy baby

Have you seen your kid turning into a cranky baby even though you fed the child properly? This might be because of lack of essential nutrients in your child. The preservatives in the junk food and ready to eat items and the sharp flavour does nothing to build your kid’s immunity. And you won’t believe but the junk food doesn’t even satisfy their hunger. (Yes, it does fulfil their cravings though.) And that is the reason even though your kid is fed adequately the child shows that crankiness in behaviour. However, if you include a healthy meal consisting the right proteins, carbohydrates and vitamins in your child’s diet, you’ll soon find a visible difference in your kid’s mood swings.

Better bowel and digestive system


We all know packet food contains a lot of ingredients which do cause Constipation and even food refluxing. And if they are more into having the packet potato chips and snacks, they’ll even complain of a burning sensation in urine. The high acids contain and excess salt along with the preservatives are the main causes of these issues. Instead, if you make a habit to give kids nuts and dry fruits as snacks or occasional homemade fried chips, they’ll have a better bowel and digestive heath. (You can even try roasted beetroot, carrot, sweet potatoes and broccoli chips with light salt and herbs seasoning for them.)

Lesser cold and cough attacks

Cold, cough and fever are majorly caused due to infections because of low immunity level or simply because of excess intake of sugar or preservatives. (And of course cold items.)And even you would agree that all these problems because of unhealthy diet. While having fresh vegetables and fruits along with the beans and millets do improve your child’s immunity level and even they are lesser prone to cold attacks by having these.

The normal body growth

Most of the kids today are either underweight, overweight or their height isn’t regular. You will even find girls turning into the puberty age even before the normal age range. This isn’t at all surprising if your child is not intaking the right amount of nutritions required by the body. If your child is introduced to the right amount of minerals and vitamins from the start, such problems in the body growth never happens.

So now you can well imagine the importance of proper nutritional food intake in your child. So, if by any chance if you are avoiding this issue for the future, get yo from your slumber, break your so called trust in the ready to eat food and start serving organic, fresh, homemade and healthy meal to your kids.

    I agree that ready to eat food is not at all good for the health of your child. You should try to cook it yourself and retain all nutrition in the ingredients of the food.
