As we are more aware of what we are eating these days, is important to remember that a lack of nutrients in anyone’s diet can have a high impact on our overall health. Eating require not only knowledge but also a process that is put in place to benefit our modern life. We are different from one another when comes to eat food, and what we like to eat is not always what we need to eat to be healthy. From our experience, people ask for specific foods that are more custom with their taste than with the benefit to their health.
Despite the discoveries each day in foods we still don’t have a nutritional class in the early education system. Kids can learn so much and the information’s provided at an early age can be set for a generation that will make better decisions in the future about food. Healthcare always was a big and popular point of discussion but everyone wants to come with solutions now, rather invest resources and send the right message to reduce the problems in time. Until then let`s teach our kids the right and responsible way to eat make a lot of sense.
Some of today’s knowledge should include how to eat a balanced diet, knowing how to adjust daily calories, portion control, knowledge of a diet plan that is composed of proteins, carbs, and fats in different percentages, minimum of cooking skills and how to make food work for our benefit. Cause you need energy, clear thinking, stay healthy, lose weight, gain weight, whatever your reason may be, eating with a purpose can only help each of us.
Imagine classes in schools that teach kids how to eat balanced, portion-controlled meals? Imagine the impact in our health system cause of such a simple idea.
Maybe one day all those good knowledge about food will be presented to kids in school…in the meantime, every parent should dedicate some time to teach their kids starting from an early age the importance of nutrition in life.
