Nutritional Goals

Posted on 15th February 2017

A healthy diet helps children to grow and learn. Nutrients and vitamins help to keep children’s body and organs healthy, as well as giving them energy. Nutritional food does not just help the physical aspects of a child; it also helps mentally. The right foods can help children to concentrate, sleep and also have a positive mental wellbeing.

 

So which Nutrients are important for my child?

The most vital source of energy and a nutrient used to build and repair tissue.

Protein Foods

  • Meat and Poultry
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Almonds

Fats

Although fats are made out to sound like the Wicked Witch of the West, fats are needed to help the body use other nutrients, building hormones and are also a great source of energy.

  • Meat
  • Fish
  • Dairy Products
  • Avocado

Calcium

  • Broccoli

Fibre

How can I make sure my child has these nutrients?

The best way to make sure your child has a healthy diet and relationship food is to have balance. This means that all foods are good but in context. This means more fruit and veggies, but the odd ice cream every now and again is fine. Aim for your child to have 5 servings of fruit and veg a day, and having 6 servings of grains a day.
