Your Child’s Food Matters

Have you ever heard it be said that you are what you eat? It’s true. Do you realize that there are so many ways to help out your children learn better and that one of them is so important but it’s dismissed? Nutritional deficiencies have been linked to various health problem; but that’s not where the lines should be drawn. I believe more attention needs to be paid to the fact that there are substances being sold in super markets and restaurants that try to pass for food when in fact they are just chemicals and additives made in a lab to enhance and “improve” the taste of foods.Some of these are: MSG, Nitrites that go in cold cuts to give them a longer shelf life at the super markets, food dyes (with red being one of the worst culprits).This is just a short list in the hopes that it’ll whet your appetite so you can start doing your own research on this vast subject. These food additives have been proven to wreak havoc in our bodies; so if an adult body can’t tolerate such things, what makes people think that a child’s body will fare any better?
I am posting a list of these awesome foods that should be a part of your kid(s) diet. Let’s get our children healthy so that they can learn better!
