When you learn what your child is supposed to be eating, it’s easy to give it to
them in a way that fits both your needs. There are easy to prepare foods
available, even prepackaged foods that are healthy. Read the labels. Avoid foods
that are high in sugar, saturated fats, trans fats and chemicals that you cannot
pronounce. One bit of advice that many health care professionals and nutritionists
like to share is “If your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize it, don’t serve it to
your child.” Meaning quite simply, if it is full of chemicals and preservatives, don’t
feed it to your child.
The goal of this exercise isn’t to chain you to the kitchen to prepare nutritional
meals for your child, it’s to make it easy for you, your child, and your entire family
to eat well – even with today's busy lives.
