Your children deserve a complete and balanced diet to be healthy. This is why the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends keeping children away from food restriction diets and parents motivating their children to have healthy eating habits.
With the rush of everyday life, it is easier to choose easy, quick meals and ultra-processed foods. However, they do not provide what is necessary for your child to grow and develop to their full potential.
The main key to giving your children a balanced diet is to have food with nutritional value at home and create healthy habits.
Includes fruits and vegetables, at least 5 servings a day.
Give them complex and integral preference carbohydrates, as they are the main source of energy. Example: whole wheat bread, rice, whole wheat crackers, cereal bars, among others.
Includes products of animal origin, as they are essential for their growth and formation of tissues such as muscle. Example: egg, chicken, meat, fish, dairy. You can also include legumes that are also a source of protein such as beans, lentils, chickpeas, beans, etc.
Have healthy snack options. Example: apple chips with yogurt and grain, carrots and almonds and walnuts, crackers with fresh cheese.
Limit the consumption of industrialized or highly processed foods that are densely caloric.
Offer them to hydrate natural water and natural drinks by limiting the added sugar.
Prepare 5 meal times. Children need snacks to stay energized during the day.

A very trusted friend of mine who is a professional health practitioner recommended this product for me. I trust her with everything I have so I bought it. She says it has Omega 3 that helps with brain function of a child.
