Kids Whole Foods Diet

IMG_0073

Kids can learn to cook wholesome meals and replace unhealthy convenient fast foods. Everyone knows that processed foods contain disease producing chemicals and additives. Whole foods are foods that are as close to their natural state as possible. A large bowl filled with organic apples, grapes, peaches, and bananas provide a sweet yummy snack for kids to grab that are filled with antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C. Instead of popping some processed frozen item in the microwave, kids can eat organic raw nuts and seeds as a quick snack that are high in protein, calcium, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Kids can easily boil whole grain pasta, a great beginning for a dish. Whole grains have not been processed to remove the bran, germ, and endosperm of the grain, along with most of the nutrients, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Kids can pick fresh organic veggies and herbs for the pasta dish when they grow an organic container garden. Eating a rainbow of fresh raw and cooked organic veggies in different shapes and flavors is the key to a healthy life. Powerful phytochemicals and essential minerals in green leafy plants and potent antioxidants and vitamins in organic vegetables support the body’s healthy weight and functioning. Pediatricians say just switching water for soda or other sugary drinks is a major health victory for kids and their families. Organic fruit, such as strawberries, oranges or lemons, can be put in glass bottles of water in the refrigerator for a refreshing drink. When kids eat a whole foods diet and grow an organic container garden on the patio, they can benefit from being outside in the sunshine, breathing the oxygen rich environment, and picnicking in their garden sanctuary.
