3 Effective Ways To Make Your Kids Live A Cavity-Free Life
Your kid has 35 candy bars; then he eats 20 candy bars. What does he have now? Cavities, your kid has cavities.
So, how do you support your kids’ dietary needs when they’re out of the home?
As summer is just around the corner, we are going to discuss a couple of nutritional factors and scrumptious snack foods to help your children support their dental health when they head back to their schools.
Here are some orthodontist Normand Bach’s health-savvy snacking ideas:
Toning down the sweets devil in school
If you’re planning to add something fairly sweet, make it a healthy and antioxidant-dense sugary.
For instance, for a snack, I love to have a couple of uncooked macadamia nuts blended with a few dried blueberries. Some of my top picks are dried goji berries, golden berries, or mulberries. All these dried fruits are sweet and sour, and they are rich in nutrition.
Additionally, those goji berries have a one of a kind places in my heart because they have been used in Chinese herbology for many years.
This way, you can easily bring together the wholesome fatty acids of a couple of nuts with the vibrant taste of all these more uncommon, nutrient-dense berries.
Try to keep sugar to a minimum before lunchtime (eat a delicious breakfast every day)
Studies have revealed that if your kid starts your day with a sweet morning meal, his brain burns up quicker in the day – he gets off the track faster, becomes fatigued quicker, and his learning ability is not so quick while processing information and facts.
If you are worried about the purported, recent health hazards of eating a low carbohydrate food, make sure you read this superb rebuttal of the research study by MarksDailyApple.com, a website of Primitive Kitchen founder, lifestyle idol and writer Mark Sisson, the best seller of Primal Blueprint.
Make sure you add healthy proteins to aid growing bodies
It is not unusual for us to brace ourselves up on carbohydrate food by eating different forms of carbs (especially low-nutrient, junk foods) all day long.
This is actually bothersome for a couple of reasons.
Whenever we eat foods that are lower in nutritional value, we usually eat a lot more of them to feel full.
While your kid goes through the day and the first ‘happy belly’ feeling vanishes off, and his body finds out it did not get the nutritional value that it required, his body whines out (in the form of food cravings and urges) for more food.
Your kid takes extra forms of carbs, which end up shrinking his food cravings for real meals and perpetuating periodic carb and sugar cravings. This triggers more blood insulin to be released, which may induce his body to begin storing the carbs in the form of extra fat.
To put it succinctly, your kid finally experiences bouts of exhaustion and depression during the day as his blood glucose crashes and spikes (hence the modern-day term, hungry + angry = hangry kid).
