“Don’t feed your kid this?” “Don’t let your children drink that.” Are these things you have heard or been told before? In our world today, we often hear about foods or drinks we should avoid consuming, and when it comes to your kids and teens, you may want to dig a little deeper to make sure the foods and beverages your young ones are consuming, aren’t hurting their health.
Your children are still growing and developing, and thus, the wrong types of food and drink can impair their normal, healthy development and growth. The number of research studies on bad foods is too high to count, so I have narrowed down five major food types you should avoid giving your children at all costs.
Whether it be high sugar content, high sodium, high fat, sleep interference, or health issues, eliminating or at least limiting the amount of these foods your children consume can help make them healthy eaters, strong sleepers, and good growers.
