We were all hit by diet information, hype, and outright fluff. Everyone is professional and everyone has an opinion.
We have recently been told that everything we have ever taught about what we and our children eat is wrong. For example, we say that the average Western diet of 40 percent carbohydrates, 40 percent fats, and 20 percent protein is, at the excuse, the heart of the matter. A complex carbohydrate-rich diet is great for certain individuals. For others, it causes problems. Some people need (and can accept) higher levels of fat and protein.
So who is right? Hard to say. What we know is that all experts, to some extent, propose to completely change the way we eat.
This is all very difficult because what we eat is a function of our culture and our senses. We’re always shocked by ads promoting the latest fast food (some call it “Fat food”) burgers. I have been advised to take a lot of milk. We are taught that the ultimate dinner is steak and lobster. We are tempted by sophisticated television commercials to buy cooked foods that are high in salt and low in fiber.
Others blame low-fat and zero-fat proponents for designing foods that are so dry and tasteless that they can be mistaken for dog nibbles. why? We are accustomed to fat, sugar, and salt as the main taste components of our food.
From taste to calories, there are thousands of food-related issues that concern us all. However, two consequences of a healthy diet stand out. Health and weight (not necessarily in this order). These are interrelated, but may not be as direct as they seem.
It is not surprising that Western cultures have too much obesity, especially among children. Our culture, along with a strong connection between inactivity and luxury, and some of the value of the food we value, is truly amazing only that more people are not overweight. is. Have you ever heard how hard it is for American tourists to fit into a Japanese bus seat?
Like adults, children need to eat different foods from different food groups to get all the nutrients they need for growth and health. And don’t forget. Your child is influenced by your diet and you can help develop a healthy diet by keeping a wide variety of foods in the form your child prefers.
Here are some tips to help you and your child lead a healthier life:
- Make a list of healthy foods your kids will be happy to eat and buy.
- Eat your own food. You can make a batch of oversized smoothies or soups and save the rest to eat another day.
- Don’t think of a healthy diet as a “diet”. Unprocessed, unprocessed food is what nature intended for you to eat. A healthy diet is a decision and a lifestyle.
- Avoid foods that are advertised as “diet” or “fat-free”. They probably contain artificial ingredients. Instead, get real food.
- Plan your meals in advance. Do not fall into the situation of the time, energy, and inability to give your child access to healthy food.
- Do not feed your child just because you are bored, sad, lonely, lethargic, angry, stressed, or want some taste.
- Do not use food as a drug. Some people use food to keep themselves paralyzed because there is no driving force for change. Many ingredients found in sugar, wheat, aspartame, caffeine, and other foods are addictive.
- Until you replace most of your unhealthy options with healthy alternatives, identify the worst foods your child is currently eating, and decide to eliminate them.
- Starting a healthy diet on a regular basis makes it easier to keep a healthy diet. You start craving healthy food and a good-looking salad will literally start salivating your mouth.
They take 21 days to break a habit and 40 days to specifically turn a bad habit into a good one, so if you’ve been eating something healthy for more than a month, you have the rest of your life. Say you can keep eating healthy for you to choose from. Set intermediate goals, such as “no grain for three weeks” or “a non-sweet drink for three weeks.”
