Tired of trying to find healthy snacks your kids will love? Check out this list for some recipes and ideas to put healthy snacks in your kid’s diet. Starting early and teaching our children to eat healthy is a great place to begin. Every child loves a good snack after school, on the go, watching TV or playing video games, so why not make it a healthy one. In many cases making the snacks can be turned into a fun activity for the kids while they help make them.
Reducing the amount of sugar and eating right can help children that have been diagnosed with ADHD, autism and other medical issues. Although what they eat is not the cause of the ADHD or autism it can help reduce the symptoms of the disorders. For example taking in too much sugar and simple carbohydrates can make the symptoms much worse than if the child eats foods made from whole grains or contains Omega 3 or 6, such as pumpkin seeds, walnuts, almonds, tuna and salmon. I know a great big YUCK! Right kids?
Other health issues that eating right can help with as well as reduce the chances of developing problems include diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and heart problems. In many cases someone that suffers from Type 2 diabetes can be free of it simply by eating right and losing weight. I know what you are thinking but I don’t want to give up all the foods I truly enjoy. Trust me you don’t have to, I said the same thing when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes oh was I mad, cussing at people telling them I will eat what I want. Then I discovered that as long as it was in moderation I could still have all the foods I love.
