Organic Food Benefits Children Too
by Webmaster, All4NaturalHealth.com
Organic food comes with significant health benefits to us,
and most certainly, organic food benefits children too.
The last thing one, as a parent, would want to do is to start feeding your children chemical-laden foods from a very young age. These chemicals remain in their bodies for years, even decades, and can manifest themselves in many dangerous illnesses later in life.
In fact, if you think about it, many of our young today are suffering from all sorts of diseases which were very rare a hundred years ago. The answer to this phenomenon lies very much in the bombardment of environmental toxins, a large part of which comes from food.
Of course, children also 'inherit' chemicals from their parents. For example, a pregnant mother who has mercury dental amalgams would be unwittingly 'feeding' toxic mercury to her unborn fetus, and this can manifest in conditions such as autism when the child is born.
Organic food health benefits include superior nutrition, and less damage via harmful chemicals. It is a double victory. Surely, as parents, if we can afford it, we would want to accord organic food benefits to our children.
One tip to realize organic food benefits on children is to introduce wholesome and health-promoting organic foods to them before the introduction of fat, salt and sugar-laden foods such as pizzas, soft drinks, doughnuts, etc. These foods influence taste buds, and they also have an addictive quality. Even adults get hooked on them, so children are definitely not spared either.
On the other hand, when one is on a regular diet of clean, wholesome and nutritious foods, one will not miss the unhealthy junk foods at all. Your body gets weaned off them. This applies to both children and adults, and you can try it if you do not believe me. In the case of children, if they have never even tried junk foods, then all the more they would definitely not crave them.
To keep your children interested, some of these suggestions may also be useful:
In general, children react better to role models than to verbal instructions or nagging. Thus, the parents and adults of the household would have to set a good example if you want to get your children to eat healthily.
Preferably, it would be very nice indeed if an organic diet is an integral part of the whole family's lifestyle.
