This article provides parents, educators, and health professionals with the information, skills, and resources needed to promote healthy development in the developmentally-challenged young child.
I’ve always been a big proponent of the idea that nutrition and health are important, but it’s been a struggle for me to really get my head around the idea that the same can be said for nutrition and health in the developmentally-challenged young child. Now that I’ve had the opportunity to spend a few days with a young child and am able to put this idea into context, I find myself getting excited about the possibilities.
My daughter has a very long list of health issues, and I believe that it is because she is still growing so fast. The latest development is that she is eating a lot of grains and is in the process of getting hooked on “bad” carbs (such as wheat bread). I have been working on developing her an “appetite-control” system that will take away the bad tastes of the bad carbs while still allowing her to eat a reasonable amount of healthy food.
I think that the major benefits of this system are that it will help her avoid bad carbs, and it will also help her with her weight. I am also trying to help her get over the fear of getting sick. I think she is getting very close to figuring out she can eat when she is sick, so I am hoping that by offering her the option to eat when she is hungry she will have less fear of getting sick.
While I don’t know that this would work for everybody, I am willing to bet that this is a good system for young children.
This system was not designed for children, but it can be a good one for anyone who has a strong stomach and wants to stick to a healthy diet. It also makes it unnecessary to buy the large “healthy food” items that most supermarkets carry. I also like that the system is very customizable – you can get it set up to go from a very basic to a very advanced version.
As I’ve mentioned before, many parents worry that their kids might not have enough of a diet. This system, along with more advanced ones, can help alleviate this problem.
There are hundreds of food items you can purchase at the supermarket. Even the most basic system lets you buy a set, or “part”, of the food items you want. You can then add new foods that you want to eat, and if your children are in the “low calorie” category, they can choose from a large menu. It also lets you include more items than you’d normally purchase, and it can be set up to automatically create a new menu based on your choices.
A lot of the food you buy at the supermarket has ingredients that are used in much more than just the food it comes from. For example, beef is used to make soup, chicken is used to make chili, and vegetables are used in cooking. So if you want to add fresh vegetables to your chili, you can. And if you want to add some beef, you can. And if you want to add some chicken, you can.
I can’t say that’s a bad idea when there are so many food additives in the store that you just can’t find out about them without looking up the ingredients, but it also means that you’re missing out on a lot of the food that’s good for you. You can’t just buy a lot of foods and hope that you’re eating the good stuff. It’s much harder to find the good stuff.
