Kid Friendly Meal Planner

Posted on 08 January 2012 by admin

Kids are the Kings and Queens of all the families. So serving food for the rulers of the family kingdom are the most auspicious task as the meal should be healthy as well as tasty. Kids prefer the same taste often and it is the responsibility of the parents to introduce all types of tastes while they are young. This is mainly because a child’s brain attains 90% of development before the age of 5. Anything launched into their life before this age gets attuned to their lifestyle and they easily adopt it. Only a healthy kid can have a healthy way of life with clean habits and they are always the center of attraction of the family unit. To gift them with a prosperous future, a strong foundation should be given by the parents and their eating habits counts higher.

Why should you plan your kid’s meal? Most of us think that there is no need to plan the meal of their little ones as they would eat the same thing served even for all the 3 mealtimes for the day.

This idea is totally wrong and a kid’s diet should be complete with vitamins, minerals, proteins, iron, calcium, potassium and few other essential nutrients that are vital to make them stronger, sharper and healthier.

How should you prepare a kid friendly meal plan? Consider all the favorite things that your kid loves to have on his/her table. Do not forget to bring in their preferred items in at least a single meal for the day. Generally kids love colors and let their food items be colorful to attract them and to make their mealtime interesting. Try to plan their meals where a wholesome food would be given to them with a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, milk, meat and sea foods.
