Thinking about your children diet and what to give them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks is not an easy task. It takes time and often nerves to feed a naughty kid with a “regular” food, not to mention healthier choices. But what are regular and other types of food, and are they always as innocent as we are used to think about them?
If you want to have a healthy and happy child, you should pay more attention to what kind of food you feed him or her. Though some parents might be aware about a couple of unhealthy choices, others may not even suspect about most of them.
Check out what foods you should keep away your kids from to avoid mistakes that may have a negative impact on their (and even your own) health.
Babies under 12 month old should not be given honey. It may have spores of so called “Clostridium Botulinum”, bacterium that germinates immature digestive system of babies and causes an infantile botulism. This is a life-threatening disease with severe symptoms such as muscular weakness or impaired sucking, just to name a few.
Adults’ immunity can cope with this small amount, but for little babies honey is a real poison. In addition, many manufacturers add high fructose corn syrup into it (for making it runny), which causes numbers of health problems such as high blood pressure and childhood obesity.
