Planning a nutritious meal or diet plan for your child is the most important concern for a parent. Ensuring that they receive the right nutrients and correct doses of vitamins, minerals, fibres, proteins and what not is challenging. The most obvious yet elusive route to achieve this is by introducing them to seasonal foods. But that is often easier said than done! Bringing your child to eat the seasonal fruits and vegetables may be tricky when they are so easily lured by a well-packaged sugar-filled treat. A good starting point is sharing the benefits of eating seasonal foods with your child. A gentle reminder that their favourite sailor Popeye gets his energy from a can of spinach is an eternal catch to get them on board!
