Do n’t blindly block kids when they love snacks
Recently, a special survey of snacking behavior among Chinese children aged 8 to 14 in cities such as Guangzhou, Shanghai, Jinan and other cities showed that as many as 98% of children have the habit of snacking.
In this regard, experts from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention have given suggestions: parents should not blindly stop their children’s habit of snacking, but should adopt a combination of blocking and blocking methods to guide children to eat reasonably and moderately.
Experts believe that parents should urge their children not to eat snacks before meals and before going to bed; usually, they should develop the habit of drinking plain water and eating less street food; try to choose small packages of snacks, which can control the amount of snacks and are more hygienicSafe; eat snacks no more than 3 times a day.
In addition, parents should guide children to choose snacks correctly, not only from the taste and preferences, but also to choose healthy food, so that children can get balanced nutrition while eating snacks.
There are many types of natural snacks in daily life, such as milk, soy products, nuts, fresh fruits, and natural unprocessed dried fruits such as raisins.
