It is also very important to have a sufficient supply of all the necessary vitamins, minerals and certain essential fats, without which the body cannot function properly. For example, omega-3 fats (EPA and DHA) are essential for healthy brain development and learning, while optimal functioning of the nerves requires B vitamins. The need for iron and zinc often increases during this phase of life, as deficiencies can show up as listlessness, fatigue and struggling with learning.
Carbohydrates - yes of course, just as little sugar as possible.
The best way to cover the need for carbohydrates is a moderate consumption of wholemeal products and fruit (2 portions per day), oats (e.g. in muesli) are particularly recommended. The daily 3-4 portions of fresh vegetables should not be missing from the diet.
Protein, zinc, iron and B vitamins
The increased need for protein, zinc and iron should be met by eating nuts, legumes, moderate amounts of meat or fish, poultry and eggs. If well tolerated, dairy products in moderate quantities should also form part of your healthy everyday diet.
Water is recommended as a healthy everyday drink - isolated fruit juices are less suitable because they contain a lot of fructose and too much of it has a negative effect on blood sugar levels. The same applies to sweet drinks, which should only be drunk infrequently.
The best healthy fats to use when preparing food are cold-pressed organic rapeseed or olive oil and coconut fat.
It should be remembered that eating habits in childhood shape later eating habits. According to the motto: You can't teach an old dog new tricks!
