Child nutrition is not a treatment per se as much as way of living to ensure the child leads a healthy life. The right diet can help a child greatly in growing and learning quickly. It can also help prevent all kinds of diseases, which act as obstacles in their development. To make sure their child's diet is healthy parents should give their children nutritious and home-cooked meals once they're off the breast. Every meal given to a child should be composed of a portion of fresh fruits and vegetables. Moreover, parents should make sure that their child's diet is inclusive of healthy sources of protein such as nuts, eggs, pulses, soy and lean meat. When giving them breakfast, parents should choose whole-grain cereals and breads instead of those made of flour as whole-grain food items are a rich source of fiber, which keeps the stomach full and helps control junk food craving. The quanitity of refined grains should be reduced in a child's diet as it can have adverse effects on their health. Moreover, fried foods should be avoided to the extent possible and while cooking meals, parents should made sure veggies and meats are not fried but rather broiled, steamd or grilled. This helps preserve the nurtrients in foods so that the child can get maximum nutrition from his meals. Junk food should be given to children in very limited quantities and instead healthy snacks should be offered. Parents should also give their children milk or fresh fruit juices instead of sodas and cold drinks. Besides monitoring what the child eats, another thing parents need to do is offer thier child meals on the right time and regularly so that they can keep healthy.
