Let’s face it – as a parent we all tend to obsess what our kids eat (or in my case doesn’t eat).
We want them to be healthy and get all the nutrients they need. Knowing what exactly they need can be hard at times. And quite often our children will tell us what their body needs simply by what they seem to be craving. Take a look at what 4 food groups you should be making sure your kids eat. You might be surprised by what’s on the list:
1. Saturated Fats
Despite the demonizing of this nutrient, kids need saturated fats and cholesterol for proper brain and nervous system development, healthy tissues and cell membranes, optimal immune systems, and strong bones and teeth. Children should eat plenty of whole fat dairy, meat (not necessarily lean), and eggs produced from pasture-raised animals.
Are your kids getting these 4 food groups?
