With the aim of achieving a healthy and complete diet for your children in school as well as outsider of school, our Head Chef recommends:
- Encourage your child to eat fish approximately three times a week.
- Remember that using tinned tuna is an easy way to ensure that they eat fish regularly.
- They eat fruit four times a week in school. Natural, peeled fruit without additives. You could give them the rest of their daily fruit in the afternoon or evening with a natural fruit juice for example.
- Offer them more vegetables, boiled and pureed.
- Pulses and beans should form part of their diet and should be eaten twice a week. Lentils are a good choice, in the evening as well.
- Seeing that in school they eat white meat, you could complete their diet using read meat: beef, horse…
- Children should consume the equivalent of half a litre of milk a day. Encourage them to eat dairy products during breakfast (cheese, yogurt…) in order to meet their needs.
- Control the amount of sweets they eat.
- If you give your child cakes and pastries, it is better if you get them from traditional bakeries and not buy industrial, processed products which contain high levels of saturated fats.
