Some parents are having a hard time feeding their children healthy food. Sometimes I ask myself how can I continue to encourage my kids to eat healthy. To be honest, they are not picky with fruits but when it comes to vegetables, the kiddos are really picky.
With the continous increase in number of obese and underweight children in the world, I think parents needs to be vigilant with the food that we give to our kids.
In promoting healthy eating habits, Beko- the Official Partner of the Everyday, launched its Eat Like A Pro advocacy on the Philippines. This campaign aims to help parents feed their chikchil healthier food. This effort is in support of the company's current global initiative of inspiring and educating families , especially the young ones the importance of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Benefits of #EatLikeAPro
Boost immune system
The first step to have a strong immune system is nutrition, and a well-balanced diet. Fruits and vegetables offers different vitamins and minerals which is important especially for growing up kids.
Tomatoes, carrots, citrus fruits, berries and dark green leafy vegtables, are abundant in immunity-boosting phytonutrients which help the body create more white blood cells responsible in warding off infection and illness.
Fewer calories compared to processed or fast food
Replacing unhealthy sugary snacks and fat -laden foods with fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of obesity among children. That is why it is important to encourage your kids to develop good eating habits by finding ways to make their favorite dishes healthier.
Helps improve academic performance
Children with bad eating habits or have imbalanced diet are more likely to perform poorly in school.Failing to get the required amount of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients for health could lead to focus loss, fatigue, and a loss of concentration.
To jumpstart its advocacy, Beko is set to conduct Eat Like A Pro: The Cook-off. Its going to be a parent-child tandem. The tram needs to work together in preparing delicious, budget-friendly, and healthy meals for the whole family.
BEKO is available only at ROBINSONS & SM Appliances
