Hey Parents,

 

 

As We’re initiating the process towards a healthy academic year, we thought to invite a renowned nutritionist Ms.Sohini Shah, BS, RDN (Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist- USA). She is a revered RDN (registered dietitian and nutritionist ~American Dietetic Association- USA). She has graduated with a degree in Food Sciences and Human Nutrition with a specialization in Dietetics.

She has been practicing in Ahmedabad since 2010 and counseling individuals. Her domain knowledge and enthusiasm makes eating healthy a delicious experience especially for children.

 

She has some instant tips for your children. (Aged 1-6 years)

 

Since kids have maximum nutrition needs, adequate nutrition is extremely important for a child to reach his/her own potential for growth, development and health

Timings of meals and snacks need to be regulated and encourage your children to have meals and snacks at the same time everyday, this will help with better concentration levels and leave them less cranky

Include seasonal and local fresh produce and a variety of grains, pulses, fruits and vegetables on a daily basis

Ensure to give your child 2-2.5 cups (200 ml) of milk or curd on a daily basis (unless they are lactose intolerant)

Kids have very small stomachs, so every bite of food counts

Every child can be a fussy eater, don’t encourage the fussiness. It takes a child almost 20 times to try a new food/ ingredient before they actually start liking it

Be a good role model to the child and be patient.
