Healthy Super foods You Must Include In Your Kids Diet
The kids of today can be simply referred to as the fast food generation. They have easy access to all the food and yet not all the nutrition. Unlike adults, kids have different nutritional needs that help develop their immunity and growth. To ensure that your child get all the right kinds of nutrients, add these must-have superfoods to his or her diet.
High in protein and B vitamins, eggs are beneficial during a kids growth years. Try cooking eggs in different ways; scrambled, boiled or fried, so your kid doesn’t get bored of eating them. Try to add them in different recipes so you can add them to meals as often as possible.
Milk is a good source of calcium, vitamin D and phosphorous which is vital for the development of bones and teeth. Apart from that, milk also contains other essential nutrients like protein, zinc, vitamin A, B2 and B12. If your children don’t like milk, try giving them other milk based foods like custard or milkshakes.
Beans also make for a health food as they are high in proteins, calcium, fibre and antioxidants. Beans are also low in fat, calories and sodium. Including beans in your kid’s regular diet will ensure they get the right amount of energy and nutrients. Beans like garbanzo beans, soybeans, dried peas, lentils etc. are very healthy.
High in beta carotene, vitamin A, C and E, fibre, calcium and iron, sweet potatoes are one of the most healthiest vegetables. What’s best is that this vegetable is a delight to ones taste buds too. You can try boiling, baking or even grilling them to make a healthy yet tasty snack. If your kid is fond of French fries, replace regular potato with sweet potato to make a healthier version of it.
Fish is known for its omega-3 fat content which can boost brain development in children and improve their eyesight. Include fishes like salmon and tuna to your kid’s diet regularly.

For the past 30 years, we have been told that fats are bad for the body. But groundbreaking new research has shown that high cholesterol has incorrectly been labeled “public enemy number one” for the heart.
For example, in one study people with higher levels of cholesterol had better heart health and brain function as they aged compared to those with the lowest levels of cholesterol – and they lived a whopping 48% longer! (1,2)
Because cholesterol is so instrumental in the production of cell membranes, hormones, and the precious bile, as well as maintaining healthy brain and nervous system function, the body cannot rely completely on dietary sources of cholesterol. To ensure adequate supply, the liver is employed to make its own cholesterol — ideally about 75% of the body’s total cholesterol, with the other 25% coming from the diet. (3) However, when we starve the body of dietary cholesterol (good fats), it suffers and the liver is forced to make up to 10 times the amount of cholesterol coming in from the diet.
Good fats are not only critical for the production of life-giving cholesterols, they are also critically needed by the liver to make bile. In fact, the bile is made up of primarily cholesterol, the word chole actually meaning bile and sterol being a type of fat.
The bottom line is that we need good fats for many reasons, and our requirements for good fats may surprise you.
Join me in Part II in this series on What’s Missing in Our “Healthy” Diets, where I’ll talk about the magic of — and how to get enough — beneficial fats in our diet.
