lose weight for good: full-flavour cooking for a low-calorie diet

What children should and should not eat

To ensure that children enjoy good health, it is necessary that they have a  varied and balanced diet, since the difference between good and bad nutrition will affect their health and well-being. Our diet must be rich in carbohydrates, contain a third of fat and the rest must be covered by proteins. At the same time, as important as eating is the practice of some daily physical activity . Two important resources to avoid childhood obesity.

How is a good and a bad infant feeding

Food is not a reward, nor should it be a punishment, nor should it be an outlet for a person’s tensions. Food must have its place, its time, and its control. Those who are largely responsible  for a child’s overweight  are their parents, those who determine what is consumed at home.

Normally, whether due to mistakes, obsessions, or ignorance and ignorance of their parents, children consume more food than they need , and their diet is very rich in fats, sugars, present in large amounts of meat, in convenience foods, and in sweets and buns. In general, they are children who do not consume vegetables, legumes, fruits, or fish. To that it is also added that many children ignore and end up leaving the house without having breakfast.


In the latest research on childhood overweight, among other things, it was found that 8 percent of Spanish children go to school without having breakfast. Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, and it is directly involved in weight regulation.

10 successes in infant feeding

When parents give their children due attention and care about their diet, the chances of them becoming overweight are low. The control of adults is essential when it comes to preventing childhood obesity. For this, it is necessary to obey some nutritional guidelines, considering that the first years of a child’s life are crucial in their education:

1- Today it is considered that feeding on demand for the baby is the most correct.

2 – When the baby cries, do not offer the breast the first time, without first detecting the cause of the crying and trying to calm him down. Breastfeeding, indiscriminately, can lead the baby, when he is older, to resort to food when he suffers some discomfort.

3 – Periodically visit the pediatrician, when necessary or in the check-ups determined by the health center. It has been shown that a child who follows medical control is less likely to suffer from obesity or any other disease

4 – Follow the diets that the pediatrician will pass on to the baby, month by month. That is, respecting and introducing food according to the age of the child. It is a good means of prevention.

5 – Allow the two-year-old to have a taste of everything.

6 – Prevent children from skipping meals , organizing a meal routine and being consistent.

7 – Prepare meals with fresh and natural ingredients, whenever you can

8 – Consider the table of weights and measures that we offer and the one determined by your child’s pediatrician. And in the event that the baby or child does not present a table of measurements within normality, talk with the pediatrician about how to improve the situation.

9 – Offer a varied diet of meats, flours, vegetables, fruits, etc.

10 – Offer children plenty of fluids especially in hot seasons and after doing physical exercises. Water is a good source and a fluid that has no calories.

Parents’ mistakes in feeding their children

Force the child to eat more than they can or want.

– Reward good behavior with sweets, sweets and other caloric foods.

–  Punish the child  without food for any unfavorable behavior.

– Celebrate any important event in the child’s life by offering him a ‘junk food’.

– Allow the daily consumption of buns, carbonated and sugary drinks.

– Offer, frequently, precooked dishes  (usually frozen) due to lack of time.
