Fruits for Kids: The Benefits, Fun Serving Ideas.

Fruits are good for growing children because they provide many health benefits. For instance, all fruits provide fiber which helps with normal bowel function. Please note: fruit juice does not contain fiber! So when possible, choose whole fruit, whole fruits from Teruke marketplace.

Fruit also contains vitamin C, which helps your immune system repair bodily tissues. It helps heal cuts and wounds and helps to absorb iron in their bodies. Fruits of different colors also offer kids different health benefits. For example, red, blue and purple fruits contain antioxidants to help protect your child’s developing brain. Red fruits boost heart health.

Depending on your child’s age, these serving sizes can be broken into smaller portions for meals and snacks. For example, if your child is 2-3 years old, you might aim for four ¼-cup portions of fruit throughout the day to meet the daily goal.

Diseases and Conditions Influenced by Nutrition

Many health conditions are caused and/or affected by food and nutrition. Some are directly caused by food, such as “food poisoning” or bacterial infections from contaminated food. Some people can have severe allergies to foods like peanuts or wheat (celiac disease). Gastrointestinal ailments—such as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)—are also directly affected by the consumption of food.

For other diseases and conditions, the type or quantity of food can influence the progress of the disease. Diabetes mellitus, for example, which results in the inability of the body to regulate blood sugar, is drastically affected by the types and quantities of food eaten. Carbohydrate intake has to be carefully monitored if you suffer from diabetes, or blood sugar can rise to dangerous levels. Other conditions affected by food and nutrition include:

  • hypertension: Salt intake affects blood pressure.
  • heart disease/high cholesterol: Fatty foods and partial hydrogenated oils can create plaque in arteries.
  • osteoporosis: Low calcium, low vitamin D and excess fat can result in fragile bones.
  • certain cancers: A poor diet and obesity are associated with increased risk of breast, colon, endometrial, esophageal, and kidney cancers.

Your food choices and nutritional status can influence your overall health over the entire course of your life.

Daily allowances of fruit and vegetables

Different fruits and vegetables contain different nutrients. The Australian dietary guidelines recommend that adults eat at least 5 kinds of vegetable and 2 kinds of fruit every day.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that adults eat at least 400g, or 5 portions, of fruit and vegetables (excluding potatoes, sweet potatoes and other starchy roots) per day to reduce the risk of disease. This amount of fruits and vegetables also ensures adequate fibre intake and can also reduce total sugar intake.

A national nutrition survey conducted by the Australian Government showed only 6.8% of Australians eat the recommended amount of vegetables, whilst just over half (54%) met the recommendations for usual serves of fruit.

Children and teenagers have special food needs because they are growing and developing. They also need extra energy for playing and being more active. Even though they need more energy, children have a smaller stomach capacity than adults and cannot eat the same serving sizes. However, you should encourage your children to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables.

By eating well, your children will have the energy they need to play, concentrate better, learn, sleep better and build stronger teeth and bones. Building good habits in their early years can also provide the protection of a healthy diet throughout their lives.

Childcare and school lunchboxes, like meals and snacks at home, should continue to reflect the 5 food groups and not include discretionary foods and drinks.

The Australian dietary guidelines have recommendations on how many vegetables and fruits adults, children and adolescents of different ages require
