I offer a recommendation for parents and a questionnaire for nutrition of pre-school children. The material will help to make the menu for the summer child in kindergarten and at home.
Summer growth processes in children occur most intensively, therefore increasing their need for protein is mainly of plastic material.
In addition, on hot days the child’s body loses through sweat considerable quantity of minerals and vitamins. To cover these additional costs will require a higher caloric content and nutritional value of children’s diet. On the other hand, on hot days in children often there are changes in the gastrointestinal tract is decreased appetite.
Why, dear parents, You organize your child’s diet in the summer?
First, the caloric intake should be increased by about 10-15%. To this end, in the child’s diet should increase the amount of milk and dairy products, mainly due to the dairy drinks and cheese, as most sources of complete protein.
