Light up your child’s breakfasts during Christmas
Calling on all Smart Mums and Dads!
A child’s development commences from the early years of life and offers an amazing window of opportunity to ensure they grow up to be healthy, strong and smart adults. Nutrition is a critical factor that impacts a child’s growth and development during these years. Nutrition help shapes pivotal aspects of your child’s overall wellbeing – such as physical growth, cognitive development, immunity and maturation of internal organs. Incorporating age appropriate nutrition is a fundamental part of meeting the nutritional needs of your child.
Did you know that age specific foods can enhance your child’s development by supporting to provide the necessary nourishment they need for their growth stage at each age? Remember that your children are not “miniature adults” and the nutritional approaches for a child is different, starting from breakfast.
Breakfast is often referred to as “the most important meal of the day” for children and there are good reasons for that. Besides being a great time for the family to bond, breakfast time can help kick start your child’s metabolism after 8-10 hours of intestinal inactivity due to sleep. Breakfast gives your child’s body the fuel needed for them to soar through the day! Children who eat great breakfasts regularly, have been found to be more energetic, maintain a healthy body weight, and be overall healthier than their counterparts who don’t. Eating breakfast also aids your child’s attention, concentration and memory spans – all of which are very important for excellent performance in life.
