You’re probably well aware of cutting fats out of your family’s diet. Over the years you’ve learned to trim fat and remove skin from your meat. Fritos and potato chips don’t make it to your grocery cart anymore, and your favorite department is produce. But what about healthy fats and how do you make sure your kids are getting enough of those?
For a healthy growth rate and development in children, make sure to provide foods like raw nuts, seeds, legumes, and avocados. Not only are these foods loaded with healthy fats, they’re full of nutrients too. Food like raw nuts and seeds have been proven to help us live longer and prevent heart disease and cancer.
Try including these raw nuts and seeds in your child’s diet: Walnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, pistachio nuts, and flax seeds. These are just a few suggestions. Experiment to discover new family favorites, and try to make them available for a quick and energy boosting snack.
