IMG_0330

Kids can eat a rainbow of organic fruits and vegetables for a healthy, balanced diet. Brightly colored fruits and veggies are the magic secret for all around health. Each vivid color is a different spectrum of photochemical nutrients and antioxidants. Fruits and veggies also provide vitamins, minerals, fiber. Kids can eat five servings of colorful fresh local organic fruit and veggies like an orange, blueberries, broccoli, tomatoes, and corn, every day to be healthy and strong with alert minds ready to learn. The secret to enticing kids to eat their veggies is to get them involved in the planting, growing, and cooking process. For a balanced diet kids want bread and other carbohydrates like potatoes, rice, or pasta. To round out the menu is healthy oils, like virgin olive oil, and fats, like avocado, nuts and seeds; plus proteins, and a small amount of sweets. Kids need to drink 6-8 glasses of pure water every day. Kids like organic whole grain bread, trail mix, homemade fruit smoothies, and hummus and will swap out unhealthy fried processed foods. Kids can get the best from the food they eat by steaming veggies or eating them raw in salads or with homemade dips. Healthy eating can be fun and tasty for kids by substituting healthy alternatives and getting kids involved in growing and cooking their food.
