Many children don’t eat as healthy as they should.
Children are constantly on the go and don’t have time to eat a good meal. Their go to is fast food, which is not very good for you.
If you go to a fast food place, you should consider getting apples, or even milk instead of french fries or soda. It’s the little things that will help you stay healthy.
Parents should try to cook a meal at least twice a week so that their kids have the nutrients they need growing up. Without the proper nutrients, children’s bones will become weak, making it difficult for their muscles to develop correctly.
Children need two to three servings of diary and meat everyday. You should also have two to four servings of fruit a day.
The nutrients you need the most are vegetables, with three to five servings, and six to eleven servings of grains. Grains can include: rice, oats, crackers, pasta, and pretzels. Whole-wheat items are preferred.
Many fast food restaurants do not provide enough of these healthy foods to maintain proper serving requirements for their customers.
Sometimes eating healthy is not always possible, but it’s important to try your best to do so.
On health.com, Jess C. Scott said, “A fit, healthy body—is the best fashion statement.” Eating the right things can make you feel the same way.
If you’re a student in school, pick up a fruit or vegetable at lunch. It’s an easy thing to do and can make you healthier.
Eating a little healthier everyday will make a difference in your life. You’ll feel so much better and have more energy.
Before you eat your next meal, consider what the proper servings are so you can lead a healthier lifestyle.
