Helping kids eat healthy: Choice, with a twist
Let children eat whatever they like, but ensure that along with their choices they eat these three things on a daily basis:
1. Some protein at each meal such as eggs, fish, cheese, or pasture-fed beef or chicken.
2. A source of Omega-3 fatty acids such as either deep-water fish, hia seeds or freshly ground flaxseeds.
3. A fresh green vegetable at each meal that is raw, lightly steamed, or briefly fried in butter, not margarine or vegetable oils.
As well as the healthy food, they need to get 20 minutes of sunshine each day without sunscreen for those vitally important first 20 minutes. Any longer than that, apply an organic-based sunscreen with no nasty additives.
