'We owe it to ourselves and our family to take the time to look at what we’re feeding them.'
As any parent will know, we want to give our little ones the best start in life, from that comfortable state of the art pram for your newborn to signing them up for an array of extra-curricular activities to make them the next David Beckham or Harry Potter! But possibly the most important and fundamental gift we can give them is a healthy diet. This is the foundation for building a healthy body, mind and spirit.
It sounds such a cliché now to say “We are what we eat” but it really is so true and is important for every growing child to receive a balanced, healthy diet. If you stop to think about it, our body is an amazing thing. Each organ, muscle, tissue, nerve, cell all working in harmony together and fuelled by whatever we eat.
By eating close to nature and cutting out processed foods and refined sugars, your child will enjoy a nutrient rich diet. Mealtimes can be tasty, varied and healthy. Consider the colours on the plate – make meals look appealing as well tasting delicious. This will encourage even the pickiest of eaters!
We owe it to ourselves and our family to take the time to look at what we’re feeding them. In this way you’re offering the best investment for your child....a healthy body.
