With almost two hundred-plus days in the school year, it is definitely a challenge to think of different dishes to prepare for your kids every day. We know you've already done countless ways on how to make a sandwich or a cookie. But did you know that aside from alternating chicken or tuna as a sandwich spread, or adding on chocolate chip chunks on the cookie batter, there is a much simpler way of serving the usual dish for your kids—you just need a bit of creativity and a quick reference on the food pyramid.
Easily determined through its five groups, the food pyramid can already help you decide on what is the best dish to pack for your children. As we all know, bread, wheat, and rice are at the bottom of the food pyramid. This only means that it is ideal to let your kids eat much of these compared to the other food groups.
Why not make him some granola bars? Just mix in dried fruits, granolas and maybe even some oats; then drizzle with honey and shape into small balls.
The next food group is fruits and vegetables. This one is slightly easier than the first. How easy? Why not try to cut up some papayas or bananas? Just place them neatly in a clean container and you already have a nutritious baon for your kid.
Oils and proteins are on the two topmost portion of the food pyramid. This means food in these sections should only be taken in moderation. This is perhaps the rule we mostly overlook because needlessly to say, meats like beef and pork are our kids' favorites. What you can do mommy is to balance everything out.
Having all the different meals made out of the different food groups, you can now create your own special nutritious bento box. Make sure that the portions of the food are aligned with their levels from the food pyramid.
Of course to make these all complete, make sure to give your child a glass of Lactum 3+/6+ before going to school! Remember, Lactum has the essential nutrients found in food groups from the food pyramid so that your kids can be 100% nourished* and ikaw, 100% panatag!
