Healthy Snacks For Kids


  Healthy Snacks For Kids

Why it crucial to treat diet for kids discretely from that for adults?
During the initial years, kids grow very speedy in social, physical, intellectual and emotional aspects. Kids are in growing phase up to age of 18; their immune system is not fully developed. Hence they are mostly exposed to infectious diseases due to inadequate nutrition, many of which can be successfully prevented or treated through proper nutrition. With adequate amount of nutrition kids become stronger, productive and realize their potential.


Recommendations on Healthy Snacks for Kids:

1. As compared to weight, their energy requirement is higher than adults.
2. Kids are selective eaters, mostly skip meals.
3. Their diet mainly governed by the taste. They don't eat variety of food. Hence their snacks should be packed with nutrients      as well as taste.
4. Their food should be high in proteins, calcium because protein is important for the growth and development. Calcium is      necessary for bone health.
5. It is observed that kids may not like vegetables or salads served separately, but they would much all the stuffing in the     snack they like. So try to add necessary vegetables in their favorite snacks.
6. Keep your kids away from soft drinks; give them fresh unfiltered (not packaged) fruit juice, milk, fruity yoghurt,     milkshakes, buttermilk or lassi.
