Are your kids trying to adjust to the nip in the air after sweltering October heat? Such transitions in the weather call for a bounty of healthy eats to pump up your kids’ energy levels.
Here are some nutrient-packed superfoods that will help build your kids’ immunity levels. Try introducing these foods early in their diets so that they acquire a taste for them.
Nuts are nutrient-rich and an excellent source of proteins, good fatty acids, anti-oxidants and B complex vitamins. They promote the overall well-being of the body and mind making them ideal to fight infection. Ask your kids to consume a fistful of almonds, walnuts and dates to get a good mix of sugar with protein to keep energy levels high.
Millets are one of the oldest and traditional sources of protein in India. Being gluten-free and a rich source of vitamins and minerals, there are a variety of millets that you can add to your child’s diet. Try out different recipes with sorghum (jowar), finger millets (ragi), foxtail millets, pearl millets (bajra) which kids would enjoy eating.
Serving kids seasonal fruits like plums, peaches, apricots, cherries, pomegranates, etc. will help boost immunity. Generally, kids love fruits and giving them a colourful platter of fruit salad – which is rich in anti-oxidants and vitamins – will also help in digestion and keep their skin nourished.
But most importantly, it is advisable for kids to follow good handwashing hygiene before and after they consume any food item. Try Godrej protektmasterblaster handwash to protect your kids from germswhile keeping their skin soft.
