How many times have you heard “Mom play with me” or “Mom I am bored, let’s do something” and you’ve left all your duties just to play with your child? We think that it is absolutely important for you to play with your kid and spend most of your time with him/her,…
Proper Nutrition for Your Kid in the Summer
Most of us do not have a desire to eat fat and heavy food during these hot, summer days. That’s why we should use these days to change our diet and simply eat more vegetables and fruit.
That’s exactly what your kid should also do, because doctors often advise people and their children to drink more water, eat light food and protect themselves from the sun.
Majority of people have no desire to eat too much, because their body is asking for something fresh and light and of course wants more liquid than usual.
So in case your kid is not into that kind of nutrition, you need to explain to him/her that in the summer it is very important to consume a lot of fruit and veggies.
For example if your kid likes cheese, than you should give him young cheese, along with yogurt or milk.
Avoid cream or old cheese, because they are too strong for this time of year. Then you should also give your child fish, instead of meat, because it is lighter and more appropriate for your child’s stomach.
If your child doesn’t like fish, then only in that case you can give him/her chicken or turkey. Other meat is simply too heavy for them in the summer.
Pay attention to your groceries, because they can easily be spoilt, especially eggs, meat and dairy products, so always check them before giving anything to your child.
It is completely normal to give your kid ice cream every once in a while, but be careful with it, because doctors say that kids usually get food poisoning from ice cream.
