Children’s Nutrition- Part 1:

March is National Nutrition Month.  I saw a bunch of handouts on children’s nutrition at my kid's school.

Children’s nutrition is so important.  Any parent or care giver is in an invaluable position to help mold a child’s view in their eating habits.  Does your child eat 3 or more of their weekly meals while sitting in the car?  Are they eating processed foods for 70 % or more of their weekly meals?  Do they see you eating mostly processed foods?  Do they see you cooking whole, clean eating foods? 

Today is the day to make a change for your kid’s future.  Along the same lines that we discuss in the adult topics about food in this blog, CHANGE doesn’t have to radical.  It begins with small steps such as adding 1 more fruit or vegetable to a child’s daily meal plan.  It could be changing your bread from white to lighter whole wheat (hopefully you can move into regular whole wheat eventually).  It could be changing their breakfast.  It could be changing their breakfast cereal from Cocoa puffs to Cascadian Farms cinnamon squares (way lower sugar); it could mean that you stop buying pop for your house.  Your family will fuss, but re-direct them to water, or get flavor packs to brighten up the flavor until they get their taste buds adjusted.  Make a change for your kid’s better health.

According to the article at school, 1/3 of third graders in my county are obese!  Gross.

 Scroll to the Centers for Disease control’s web site or look up www.fruitsandveggiesmatter.gov to use the interactive tool to help you determine how many fruits and veggies you and your family need each day. 

Tomorrow we will investigate more issues about you and your children’s nutrition.
