Depending on your child's age, nutritious and healthy meals are the key to their health. Once the period of breastfeeding and feeding with adapted milk has gone, it is time to include more varied foods. This way, he can get vitamins and minerals such as calcium, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, Selenium, Iron and others. All of these play an essential role in the proper function of a child's body.

Food has a mix of nutrients that are:
Macronutrients including fat, protein, and carbohydrate;
Micronutrients, including vitamins and minerals
The main types of food for a child are:
Vegetables - the consumption of a variety of vegetables has a beneficial effect on the health of the child, as they help to obtain essential vitamins and minerals;
Fruits - we recommend that you feed your child fresh fruit and limit the consumption of fruit juices. Limit intake of these juices to one glass per day;
Whole grains - like whole wheat pasta, quinoa, brown rice, wheat and others;
Plant-based healthy proteins - this group of children's foods includes beans and peas, nuts, fish, eggs, and poultry;
Red meat - includes lamb, pork, and beef. Please note that you must avoid feeding your children processed meats such as sausages, bacon, hot dogs, etc. In addition, we will say that you should be careful with saturated fat and avoid unhealthy trans fats;
Dairy products - dairy foods include milk, cheese, and yogurt. They are a source of calcium and vitamin D, but it is recommended that children consume them in small amounts. Always choose dairy products without added sugar.
Moreover, try to use healthy oils from plants such as extra virgin olive, canola, corn, sunflower, and peanut oil in cooking, on salads and vegetables. Doing so will help build healthy habits in your child from an early age.
Lastly, your child must drink enough water to stay hydrated and feel healthy.

As we shared in the article, your child must eat healthy foods. One of your main tasks as a parent is providing your child with a balanced diet which is filled with nutritious food. Children must eat fruit, vegetables, whole grains, bread, and protein like meat, beans, nuts, cheese and eggs.
Moreover, your children must develop healthy habits. Thus, it is helpful for them to establish a routine of eating morning, noon and night. Depending on their age and needs, you can add some healthy snacks. In most cases, these are fruits and vegetables.
As your children's parents, you are the role model, and they are always watching you and what you do. You can't expect your children to eat healthy if you eat processed foods.
Be a healthy-eating role model. Children are watching your every word and movement.
For that reason, we recommend making family meals fun and relaxing. Consume nutritious and healthy foods with your child, remove tension from him, and discuss various topics with him so that he feels relaxed and happy.
Finally, what will help in building healthy habits is to get your child involved in cooking. That way, he will learn new skills, appreciate food more, and be more likely to try the food.
