Ensuring your kids get into the habit of eating nutritious food can be a challenge, as most kids prefer junk food over healthy preferences. It's no wonder tons of children end up malnourished nowadays.
Unfortunately, poor diet in kids can lead to illnesses. Studies have shown that kids who eat unhealthily are much prone to develop long-term health issues and complications later on.
Nutrition for kids
Nutrition is paramount in a kid's growth. Ensuring our kid's nutrition at a very young age will help them grow physically and mentally healthy.
If you're still struggling to train your kids to eat veggies no matter how many tricks you've done, it's now easy to find healthy options. Checking online will lead you to an abundant number of healthy and green alternatives. However, be careful in choosing what you'll give to your children.
As a rule of thumb, while most green and natural health options are safe, it's best to consult a pediatrician.
While there's a pool of choices, Moringa powder is our fave.
What makes Moringa good for kids
I grew up in a community where Moringa is readily available. My parents normally add these fresh Moringa leaves to different dishes due to their nutritional compound. If fresh Moringa leaves isn't accessible in your area, Moringa powder is the best option to consider.
Moringa Oleifera, known as the "Miracle Tree" is one of the most nutrient-dense food on the planet. In fact, it's loaded in Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E, calcium, Folic acid, amino acids, potassium, and iron.
It's rich in essential nutrients and phytochemicals which will help boost kids overall health. However, it's not so much recommended for infants.
In my country, Moringa has been known to help lactating moms, those who are experiencing fatigue, and anemia due to its high amount of iron. And this miracle tree isn't just for women, or men, it can also be beneficial to children.
Here are ways Moringa is good for kids;
1. Help boost energy levels
A poor diet can deplete one's energy. And just as how it can help adults boost their energy levels, this miracle tree can also do the same for children.
With 92 vitamins and minerals, plus about 46 antioxidants, it's no wonder why Moringa is perfect for reviving your kid's energy level.
2. Strengthen Immune System
Due to Moringa's anti-inflammatory and rich vitamin C & E compound, you won't need to doubt its power to improve kids' immunity to fight off infections and illnesses.
3. Improves brain health
Lack of nutrition in kids can lead to a learning disability, poor concentration, and even stress.
Studies have shown that moringa contains 25 times of iron than spinach. Moreover, it has a good amount of zinc which works well with iron to achieve better brain health.
4. Help reduce stress
When kids are too stressed, they either tend to get irritated easily and might experience sleeping problems.
Thanks to Moringa's iron content which will help kids get better sleep.
Besides, moringa is also a natural adaptogen. This will help our body's resistance to fight stress and fatigue for better sleep.
5. Complete nutrition
Imagine what 92 nutrients, 46 anti-oxidants, 36 anti-inflammatories, and 18 amino acids can do to your kid's health? It's packed with all the needed nutrients the body needs.
These are just few of the many health benefits of moringa powder.
TAKE NOTE: Make sure to consult your pediatrician to see any allergic reactions to kids. Though it has shown no negative side effects and even if it's safe for kids, still start by adding little amount if you're giving moringa to your kids. You can either sprinkle it to their favorite meals.
