As a working mom, do you sometimes end up buying fast food for your family because kulang na ang time to cook? Paano na ang proper child nutrition? Well mommies, here's some good news: you and your kids can still enjoy the occasional fast food meal. Many fast food chains have now been adding healthier options in their menu. Ang kailangan lang is to learn how to make smart choices. 

Here are some guidelines you can follow when eating out that will help you teach your kids how to make healthier food choices. 

Tip #1: Order food that are not fried or breaded as these have higher calories and fat content. Avoid the likes of fried chicken, fried fish sandwiches, french fries, onion rings and chicken nuggets. A healthier choice would be grilled or baked dishes.

Tip #2: When it comes to dressings, sauces and gravy, ask that these be served on the side para ma-kontrol ang amount ng kakainin mo o ng inyong kids.  

Tip #3: Ordering hamburger? Get a regular, single patty hamburger without mayonnaise and cheese. Pagdating naman sa pizza, order thin crust and make sure to have vegetables added in. 

Tip #4: Instead of letting your kids drink soda, have them drink fruit juice or water instead.  

And speaking of healthy drink alternatives for your kids, always make the choice to serve them with a glass of Lactum 3+ or 6+. Lactum helps you become 100% panatag that your child will be provided with 100% nourishment*. Lactum has the essential nutrients found in the food groups from the food pyramid. It is also a high source of Appetite Support Nutrients** like Zinc, Iron, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 and Thiamin.
