Fresh food for summer
Sometimes, during the months of July August, both my son just did not feel like eating much. All they want is a cold beverage and frozen snacks. What to do as a parent?
It is important that children eat well at summer camp, during family trips or just a soccer game or a swim. Here are some tips to ensure that your children meet their nutritional needs.
Morning from heatwave sometimes have challenges when one wants to eat children. A trick that works for me in the morning summer febrile, it is the whole grain muffins homemade with a glass of low fat milk, or a fresh fruit salad and cubes of low-fat cheese. Lunches need not be extensive, especially for children who eat breakfast like my younger son. He loves that I prepare a smoothie made from low-fat frozen yogurt, pieces of fruit (your choice) and low-fat milk, whipped in the blender. When possible, I add a teaspoon of flaxseed or oat flour. Encourage your children to eat at least two of the four food groups in order to provide their bodies the energy they need.
