Parents desire to have healthy and strong children. But for this to be so, they need to teach their children from early childhood to consume healthy and beneficial food.
Here we present to you the top 4 foods that are healthy for children and are essential for proper growth and development.
- Spinach – This vegetable is a real vitamin/mineral bomb. It contains beta-Carotene and lutein which are both useful for sight, as well as calcium which is needed mostly for bones and teeth.
- Yogurt – contains active bacteria that strengthen the immune system, improve the heart rate and soothe stomach inflammation.
- Tomatoes – contain pro-vitamin A, iron, zinc, potassium and a lot of vitamin C (the same amount that lemons do). They are rich in lycopene which is an antioxidant that protects the body from free radicals.
- Peas – contain a lot of protein, fiber, vitamin B, folic acid and a minimal amount of fat. They reduces the level of cholesterol in the blood and the pods of young peas also contain all of these useful substances.
