Hi, I am Jyothi Chabria. In this video, I
will be talking about healthy food ideas for
children. Today, its mandate for children
to understand what they eat because we see
so much of juvenile obesity. But there are
lot of healthy options today which never were
in the earlier times. Today you have things
like granola bars or the nutri bars which
are basically high fiber snacks which can
be taken in a mid day meal or you know a meal
during the recess. Its like a snack and you
have lot of options like pancakes today, where
you can add in flax seed powder or walnut
and increase the nutrition value of those
things. There are also lots of millet’s today
which are being incorporated in to lot of
snacks like foxtail millet or finger millet
which is rich in iron, calcium and fiber.
So you see a lot of children as in their growing
years, especially in terms of girls, teenage
girls, the requirement for iron is definitely
more because of menstruation. So, we would
always recommend children of that age group
to have more of iron in terms of natural foods
like dates or jaggery, fox tail millet, finger
millet and a lot of green leafy vegetables
like spinach or fenugreek, things
like that.
