Do you find it challenging to get your child to take in more vegetables and fruits? Does he enjoy eating junk or fast food compared to wholemeal products? Is he refusing to take in more milk as he grows up?
Well, you are not alone!
A 2012 study conducted by the National University Hospital of Singapore found that nearly 1 in 2 Singaporean parents say their child is a picky eater1. Children with unhealthy eating habits, such as picky eating, may be nutritionally compromised. Over time, if this is unresolved, it may put the child at risk of compromised growth, susceptibility to illness and impact cognitive development.
A child needs to consume a complete and balanced diet for all the essential nutrients and vitamins to help them grow and develop to their fullest potential. With a lack of nutrition, a child will be more vulnerable to illnesses and diseases. They may appear to be restless or face difficulty concentrating in class too.
So, what can you do? How can you monitor the level of vitamins or calories that your child consumes every meal? How do you know if he is having a healthy and balanced diet?
