Health is regarded as one of the primary pillars for overall growth. Especially for children, health plays a critical role in determining their brain development, strength enhancement, immunity, and a lot more. Of all the parameters associated with health, diet remains one of the most vital ones. It is the diet that serves as their primary source of energy, and the more nutritious diet they intake, the better it is for the body to keep the physiological conditions and activities balanced.
We, at K.R. Mangalam School, have many times heard the parents of our little pupils say that their children are fussy eaters and that they have strict food choices. We understand the concern as improper diet may lead to a nutritional gap, which may further trigger health issues. It has to be kept in mind that only sound health can be supportive of a good life, proper learning, and adequate growth. Hence, it is important that due care is given to the diet and eating habits of your little ones. Here are some of the benefits of maintaining a proper diet chart for your children so that you can rest assured that your kids arein the pink of health.
A diet full of fruits and vegetables of vibrant colors always ensures a nutrient-filled meal and a lot of antioxidants. In fact, including fruits and vegetables in the regular diet chart helps to ensure that there remain no nutritional gaps for your little one. As the child receives more of the essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fiber, proteins, etc., the immune system grows fortified, and your child won’t fall sick often.
Make sure that you are allowing your little angel less of the deep-fried and junk food items and enough of healthy food. This will ensure more absorption of the nutrients in the body. Also, the quantity of food consumed plays critical when it comes to the amount of absorption. A balanced diet always ensures that the child gets to eat sufficiently and neither less nor more. The right amount of food, in turn, will guarantee optimum absorption that helps in the growth process.
With a healthy diet supportive of immunity-boosting and enhanced absorption, the strength of the child will gradually improve. You will notice your child becoming more energetic in sports as well as studies, which, in turn, will improve the overall performance of the child in every sphere.
Brain agility and concentration
With optimum nutrition, brain development takes place at a faster pace. Several studies have revealed the fact that children who eat good, stay fit and grow fast. Hence, make sure that your little one’s diet consists of nutrient-rich food items so that the maximum possible growth can be ensured. As brain development takes place rapidly during childhood, the brain agility improves remarkably along with an enhanced level of concentration. Thus better learning can be guaranteed with a proper diet.
Excretion is the most important part of the physiological activities. If the body fails to excrete the unnecessary part of the food, every physiological activity gets affected. Hence, ensure that your little one is taking up enough water and fiber-rich food every day to guarantee regular excretions. This will also ensure optimum metabolism and appetite.
At K.R. Mangalam World School, positioned among the CBSE schools in New Delhi, we have always laid special emphasis on healthy eating for children as it is extremely important for their holistic growth. According to nutritionists, eating healthy within a specific time is critical for ensuring optimum nutrition absorption. Therefore, we encourage all our pupils to finish their lunch within time. However, just to make the kids eat their lunch, we never encourage the parents to send junk food in tiffin.We, at KRMS, believe just as much as making the little ones aware of the benefits of healthy eating is important, it is equally vital that parents fill the kid’s lunch box with nutrition-rich food. After all, what we eat is what we become. And we are sure, all of the parents would want their children to bloom well. Isn’t it!
