Children, you know, are difficult and demanding @clients@. Most healthy foods is not recommended, and satisfaction in their mouth. There are, however, many tricks to counter the bad habits and instil in them healthy habits. Cancer is a disease closely linked to food: eat right from an early age is the best investment for your health.

Food preferences and the habit of regular exercise are consolidated in the early years of life. Therefore it is very important to teach youngsters to eat properly and invite them to play sports in the right quantities.

Several epidemiological studies have shown that over 30 percent of cancers are associated with the type of power that followed the consumption of healthy foods from an early age is accompanied by a lower incidence of tumors.

This finding was also confirmed by a large European epidemiological study, the EPIC study, which also contributed AIRC.

The determining factor, according to the EPIC study is the high consumption of vegetables from an early childhood, compared with an intake of animal protein.

Matter of proportions

Because children are still awake and full of energy requires that the caloric intake follow the pattern shown below.

The importance of mutual lunch and dinner, unfortunately, often reversed: children who eat in school cafeterias tend not to consume the entire meal (often because they do not like), while working parents reserve the evening the most comprehensive menu, thus promoting weight gain. During the night, in fact, the child has no way to dispose of excess calories.

Breakfast is a serious matter

The breakfast in the morning, often underestimated, it is very important because upon waking, after an average of 10 hours of fasting, the body needs "fuel" to restart.

To make a good breakfast, the key element is time. Ten minutes before getting up to sit at the table is a winning strategy: not only gives the child time to wake up slowly and feel the effects of overnight fasting, but by encouraging the start of the day is not too hectic.

A poor breakfast triggers a real vicious circle: it is not easy that the child does not eat awoke to throw the hungry mid-morning snack. Consequently will not be hungry for lunch. The afternoon tea will be too rich and poor dinner: in essence shifts the balance towards nutritional snacks of little value to the detriment of the main meals.

The mid-morning snack should consist of a fresh fruit or simple bread, preferably whole, providing a good supply of carbohydrates without the excess sugar present in the cakes and biscuits instead.
