Nutrition For Kids – How To Teach Good Nutrition To Your Children

By Ben Coomber

What’s the fix?

At this point we have to consider how what we are feeding our kids is setting them up for future life. Now I can’t give you quantitative data, I can’t say to you if you feed your kids X, Y and Z that this and that will happen, but what we can draw on is our own experience as adults.

Think back to a time when you ate poor food, and too much of it, how did you feel, how did you look? And what changes did you make, and how did you feel?

You most likely dropped weight, felt more energised, your skin, hair and nails improved, you had more energy to exercise, could concentrate at work more, and the list of benefits goes on. Your kids could experience the very same benefits, so don’t we owe this to them?


Now I know it’s not as simple as this, many parents have fussy kids, and that does lead to problems, but that doesn’t mean we don’t stop exploring strategies, different foods, and different ways to get good nutrition in them and hopefully coax their taste buds into slowly accepting newer foods and textures, something within which the book I am offering for free at the end of this article for all parents will have in it, strategies to alleviate this.

What I want us to think about is treating our kids more like adults, in the respect that they need many of the same foods as we do. Try not to think too much of ‘what are kid’s foods’, they are the largely the same as what we eat, so looking at types, techniques and recipes we can try to get kids to eat is key.

One thing a parent often struggles with is the topic of whey protein, “kids can’t eat whey protein, it’s for adults.”
