Nourishing Your Child's Back-to-School Journey: Essential Nutrients For Kids

Have you ever encountered a child who adamantly refuses anything but their absolute favorite dish? It's a scenario many parents and caregivers are familiar with. As children go through their intensive years of growth and learning, their bodies require an abundance of resources to support their development. In this phase of life, a wholesome and diverse diet becomes crucial, enabling them to meet the demands of their daily activities, whether it's in kindergarten or school.

Undoubtedly, nutrition plays a pivotal role in overall well-being, particularly during periods of growth and when mental acuity is paramount. When children miss out on essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and healthy fatty acids, their bodies are deprived of the necessary elements to function optimally.

9 tips for parents | Maintain child's immunity and growth during school year

  • Drink enough

A healthy and varied diet starts with proper hydration. Around 1.5 to 2.5 liters per day are recommended for children. Water, diluted fruit juices and unsweetened herbal teas should be used here. Sodas or caffeinated beverages should only be allowed on special occasions. In addition to drinks, fruit and vegetables can also provide the body with liquid during the day.

  • 5 servings of fruit and vegetables daily

It is recommended to give five servings of vegetables and fruit daily - divided into three servings of vegetables and two servings of fruit a day. A mixture of raw, cooked and boiled vegetables is ideal.

  • Don't forget calcium

Green vegetables, delicious nuts and seeds to nibble on, and low-fat dairy products are important sources of calcium and therefore indispensable for children's diets. Calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal teeth and bones. It also supports muscle function and influences cell division.

  • Breakfast like an emperor

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Children in particular need energy in the morning to start the day vigorously. How about a muesli with yoghurt and fruit? This can be arranged creatively and child-friendly in just a few simple steps. Warm porridge with fruit or wholemeal bread with cheese and vegetables are also suitable for a healthy breakfast.

  • Omega-3 fatty acids

Fish should be on the menu at least once a week. Cold-water fish (sardines, char, etc.) are rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids and are essential for children. The fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) helps maintain normal brain function. It also supports eyesight. If you want to take omega 3 in the form of oils, you can do so in the form of rapeseed oil, linseed oil or walnut oil.

  • Sweets and fast food

Anyone with a sweet tooth at home knows how difficult it is to say no to sweet and salty foods. Sweets, chips and the like should only be eaten in exceptional cases (maximum twice a week). A conscious and responsible use of sweets and fast food should be anchored from an early age. Yes, but in moderation!

  • To be a role model

It is important not to force your child to eat, but to set clear rules. Defining clear meal times that all family members must adhere to can be helpful. Constant tasting can also help to make the food that was rejected a few months before the child palatable again. Take the time to eat and plan “time together” every day!

  • Be creative

When children refuse lunch or dinner, parents quickly reach their limits. What can you do to encourage them to eat again? It can help to let them participate in the preparation. Let them take care of little things in the kitchen. This way the children can see how the dish is prepared. Attractive presentation of the dish can also stimulate the appetite.

  • Enough sleep

Restful sleep is particularly important for children, especially those of toddler and school age. While sleeping, new energy is collected and the impressions of the day are processed.
