1) Have a good breakfast!
Our bodies need energy to function. Especially after a night’s sleep, and this is even more necessary for kids when their energy reserves are low. So whether it’s a school day or a day off, start with a good breakfast. A good dose of carbohydrates; try a toast or a slice of bread, or cereal with milk, fruit or yogurt it would help
2) Vary the diet of their meals
To be healthy, you need to consume more than 40 nutrients (such as vitamins and minerals) each day. No food contains them all; it is therefore very important to vary their diet daily. There are no good or bad foods. The best way to eat a balanced diet is to eat a varied diet throughout the day.
3) Have physical activity frequently
Just like a bike will rust when you stop using it, so also would the kids’ muscles and bones need to move. Physical activity keeps their heart healthy and keeps their bones strong. So try recreational games fitting for their age like skipping rope or soccer are good for working out our body. Swimming is particularly good for being in top form. You can also try playing with their kiss reborn toddler doll and have fun with them.
4) Take carbohydrates
Generally, we don’t eat enough carbohydrates like cereals, rice, pasta, potatoes and bread. Carbohydrates should provide about half the calories your child needs each day, and it’s important to include at least one carbohydrate with each meal. Try wholemeal bread, pasta, and cereal for extra fiber.
5) Give them fruits and vegetables!
It is in fruits and vegetables that we find the vitamins, minerals, and fibers that we need. You should try to get them to eat it at least 5 times a day. For example, a glass of fruit juice at breakfast, two different vegetables during meals, and an apple or banana to taste it. Thus, one covers the needs in vitamins, minerals, and fibers of his body for the day.
6) Avoid too much fat
Eating too many fatty foods like butter, spreads, fried foods, and pastries, although they taste great, is not always good for kids’ bodies. So do not forget: some bread, but little spreads like butter and margarine! Their bodies need fat to get all the nutrients, but we shouldn’t overdo it.
7) Drink lots of water
Not only does our body need food, but it also needs at least 5 glasses of fluid a day. In order not to get dehydrated, it is very important to drink, especially in hot weather or during intense physical activity. You don’t have to wait until they’re thirsty to drink, because their bodies need water long before they’re thirsty. Natural water is fine, of course, but you can try tap water or bottled mineral water, natural or lightly flavored, carbonated or noncarbonated.
8) Brush their teeth well
Ensure they brush their teeth at least twice a day. Eating foods high in sugars or starch (slow sugars) too often during the day can contribute to tooth decay. Avoid giving them snacks or sugary drinks all the time. Sugar-free chewing gum can help keep their teeth healthy depending on their age. The best way for them to maintain a sparkling smile is to make sure they brush their teeth twice a day.
