Ready to learn something really important and useful for the whole family? Let’s go!

As they say, it is not always about what you eat. It’s also about how much we eat. Eating right at the right amounts. Knowing the proper allowances of food is essential in attaining balanced nutrition. Specially for our kids.

The food essentials (fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods, and dairy) should be properly portioned so we get the ideal nutritional allowance. The food plate chart below, developed by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) suggests the right amount food essentials kids should have only a daily basis.

Meal plans are also important, as it helps us organize the variety and preparation of nutritionally balanced food. Use the chart below as guide for making meals for your kids.

Tomatoes on the other hand are good for immunity boosting. It’s combination of vegetables and protein helps fill in a lot of our daily nutritional needs in a fresh, easy to eat way.

GRAINS: SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH CORN, GOAT CHEESE, AND TOMATO

Here is a healthy twist to the scrambled eggs! This meal is very flexible as it allows to you change the protein component of the meal (beef, pork, fish, etc.). a great compliment to the protein value of eggs. The corn in the dish fills in our grain essentials and also promotes good digestion.
