Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy future
Bike riding, soccer practice, music lessons, spelling tests – being a kid can be pretty demanding!
Besides giving children the energy they need for daily active living, proper nutrition promotes the healthy development of growing bones and dental wellness. It also supports weight management and boosts the immune system, which helps young bodies fight off everything from the common cold to more serious infections.
Much like the rest of the body, the brain requires just the right balance of nutrients to perform at its best. Intelligence, memory, concentration, mood, and general behaviour all benefit from a balanced diet. In short, the sharper our children’s brains, the more likely they’ll be to succeed at school, in sports, and in life.
It’s common knowledge that we establish most of our adult habits when we’re young, so the sooner we instill the value of healthy eating in our kids, the better. When we choose foods that promote a balanced diet, we not only help our kids work and play their best each day; we lay a solid foundation for their future.
