Nutrition experts have developed a food guide that you can use to ensure your child's nourishment. This is the Food Pyramid, which shows the variety and the proper proportions of food from different food groups, for your child to get the proper amount of nutrients. The Food Pyramid is the officially recognized dietary guideline by health and nutrition authorities and can be used as a tool to teach your child about proper nutrition and healthy eating habits.
Water and beverages. Water is vital for the body to function. The body must have fresh supplies every day to perform virtually every metabolic process.
Food staples: rice, cereals, potato and corn. These are main sources of carbohydrates which provide energy.
Fruits and vegetables. These are good sources of various vitamins as well as dietary fiber.
Fish, meat, poultry, eggs and nuts. These are good sources of protein needed for growth and muscle building. Milk and dairy products are also found at this section, and are good sources of calcium and other essential nutrients.
Fats, oil, sweets and salt. Fats and oil provide energy and help the body to absorb certain nutrients. Salt is the main source of sodium in one's diet, while sweets are source of discretionary sugars. These should be taken in moderation.
Eating a variety of foods in the right amounts selected from different food groups helps ensure that your child meets his recommended intake for energy and nutrients.
Give your child three balanced meals a day based on the food pyramid. Remember to include milk that is right for his age such as the new Lactum 3+/6+, now with Healthy-Nutri Blend*.
