Fast food is destroying the health of our children. From McDonalds to Fritos, junk food is so prevalent that kids are more likely now than ever before to eat things that are unhealthy for them. We parents need to ensure that we do what we can to reverse this trend.
Kids need nutritious food and they should eat as many meals as possible that consist of the three basic food groups. These are foods rich in carbohydrates, those that contain significant proteins and finally fruits and vegetables.
Our bodies need the things that are found in each of the three food groups. These chemicals are absolutely essential for the basic processes of life. It is important to remember that you need chemicals from each food group every day, not just one or another.
Your body need carbohydrates for the basic energy to operate. Carbohydrates are found in cereals, grains and wheat. Even a little bit will provide you with the energy for the daily work.
The carbohydrate-rich foods are so important for our children. They are active all day long and it is imperative that they have the energy they need to keep going.
Proteins are vital as well. They give your body the basic building blocks it needs to maintain the immune system as well as its musculature. Proteins are found in meats and dairy products as well as certain vegetables and grains.
The human body also requires the various vitamins and minerals found in different fruits and vegetables. These support different operations in the human body from proper mental functioning to healthy immune operations.
Whether your kids take a shine to healthy foods or not, you should insist that they consume what they need to every day. In this way they will be healthy and strong the rest of their lives.
