5 ways to help kids be healthy

tropicana multivitamins

As parents, it is an everyday battle to get things right. The kids must be studying right,
playing right, sleeping right and most important of it all, eating right. If you are a parent
with the kid who eats everything that you put on a plate for her, lucky you! But I know, for
sure, that there are parents out there who struggle with the eating habits of their kids every
single day, or worse, every single meal. I am one of them, and it is exhausting!

From trying to figure out whether we are giving them a balanced diet, to whether they are
having sufficient nutrient from whatever little they are eating – I try to take it 1 meal a
time. Earlier I never had to plan the meals, but now I have to make sure that the kids get
the nutrition they need.

Here are 5 ways you can make sure that your kids are getting all the good things they need
for proper growth-

Water Oh Water

Kid drinking waterDo you monitor how much water your little one is taking? If not please do! Much like
adults, kids need water and depending on their age we need to monitor their water intake.
The recommended daily amount of fluids is 5 glasses (1 litre) for 5 to 8-year-olds. 7 glasses
(1.5 litres) for 9 to 12-year-olds. 8 to 10 glasses (2 litres) for 13+ years.

Less Sugar

Have you noticed the amount of sugar is there in all of the packaged foods available for kids?

I wish it was just okay to consume sugar, but even if we cannot remove it entirely from the
kid’s diet, limiting it is very important. Major studies do tell us that Sugar is not good for
our immune system, neither does it let body absorb all the nutrients. TIP – Supplement
with Natural sources of sugar like Jaggery, organic honey etc

Balanced Diet

We all know what a balanced diet is, but however we hardly ever check if we are giving a
balanced diet to our kids.Balanced diet food background
For example, a 4- 6-year-old should eat 85 – 150 gm of protein, 1 – 1.5 cups of fruit and the
same amount of vegetable, around 115- 170 gm of grains, 2.5 cups of Dairy; apart from her
water intake. I found this helpful chart and this is what I use to help me figure out if I am
giving the right nutrients.

Eat on time

Play and Eat Time Tray

No matter how good and nutrition the food is, it is important to eat on time. Waking up late,
skipping breakfast, and eating snacks instead of good food, are all things that I have done
and these are not good for the kids. Planning out meals and making sure they get the
nutrition they need is imperative for good growth, good eating habits, and healthy future.

Multivitamins

My son is overweight and he loves eating. It is, however, easy for me to regulate his diet,
correct his portions and ask him to eat more of the good stuff that I put in front of him. But
unfortunately, that is not the case with my 5-year-old. Getting her to eat, is a task, and one
that I do not look forward too.
Kids need certain Vitamins that are absolutely essential for developing their immune
system like Vitamin C, B6, B12, Zinc and Selenium. We all Know that
Good sources of Vit. C are Broccoli Cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, green and red peppers.
B6 can be got from Poultry eggs, bread and grains .B12 is easily got from fish, poultry eggs
and breakfast cereals .Zinc can be got from nuts, dairy, eggs, whole grains.
Selenium, however, can be found in meats like beef, turkey, pork etc
Truth be told, my daughter doesn’t eat 80 percent of the things that I just mentioned. And
this is the reason for her low immunity & my main concern. For picky eaters like her, it is
imperative to find solutions to sneak in the required foods and that is how I found
Tropicana Essentials Multi-Vitamins.
Image result for tropicana multivitaminsI chose this because:
– It is fortified with 5 immuno – nutrients along with Amla. It has no added sugar, 100
percent fruit juices, and it is tasty.
– This helps me be less worried about her missing out on eating the Brocolli and the
Poultry and still help her get the nutrients she needs for growth.
– It has no preservatives, which means no added chemicals.
– It has no sweetening agents
– It helps supplement specific micronutrients deficiencies in a tasty way.

There is no supplement for real food, and we all, especially kids have to abide by these 5
mantras of eating right. I also believe that the kids emulate their parents, so how you eat
will definitely be something kids will follow. As parents, we do give them the usual junk
food, but making that a regular habit is something we all must refrain from. Instead of
giving our kids and ourselves that sugary; fizzy drink, opting for healthier, nutrient-rich
drinks like Tropicana Multivitamins is definitely a good thing to start with.
And like everything, eating right is a way of life, and it needs time, patience and
perseverance – and I am sure we can all find it in ourselves as we are doing this for our
kids and foremost for ourselves.
