To ensure that children enjoy good health, it is necessary that they have a dietvaried and balanced, since the difference between good and bad diet will affect your health and well-being. Our diet must be rich in carbohydrates, contain a third of fat and the rest must be covered by protein. At the same time, as important as eating is the practice of some daily physical activity. Two important resources to avoid childhood obesity.
Food is not a reward, nor should it be a punishment, nor should it be an outlet for a person's tensions. Food must have its place, its time, and its control. The main people responsible for a child's overweight are his parents, those who determine what is consumed at home.
Normally, whether due to mistakes, obsessions, or ignorance and ignorance of their parents, children consume more food than they need, and their diet is very rich in fats, sugars, present in large amounts of meat, in convenience foods, and in sweets and scones. In general, they are children who do not consume vegetables, legumes, fruits, or fish. This is also compounded by the fact that many children ignore and end up leaving home without having breakfast.
In the latest research on childhood overweight, among other things, it was found that 8 percent of Spanish children go to school without having breakfast. Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, and it is directly involved in weight regulation.
