Watch what you are feeding your children with March 23, 2007

Posted by Wen in : Healthy Eating , trackback

Awhile ago, I was watching one of the episode of “Super Nanny” on TV. The particular episode is showing a kid who doesn’t like to eat his meals at all. He doesn’t eat his rice, vegetables, meat, fruits, or anything else. So what does he eat then? Well, potato chips and chocolates are his “usual” food he eat everyday. Goodness, how can he survive on these junk food?

It is definitely important that children get a well balanced diet. Children really need to eat the right food and avoid eating too much junk food. And the parents are the one that educate the kids on the right diet. Going back to the “Super Nanny”, it’s no wonder why that kid doesn’t like his food. His mum seldom cook for the family and most of the time the family just eat out or grab any junk food. So it’s no suprising that the kid just gets so used to eating junk food that he doesn’t like to eat any other thing.

The kid is very thin, obviously suffering from malnutrition, and the mum is suffering from obesity. And the solution? The family really needs to relook at their eating habits and start a healthy diet plan. So if you do not want that to happen to your family, do something about it.

    We have similar problem. But the key I think is to lay out the eating rules and remain firm till your kids eat balanced food. Little chips and chocalates here and there will not be a big harm but habitual eating of junk foods need to be controlled.
